Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action Research Lab
University of Florida | Kimberly Wiley, PhD
The mission of the Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Lab is to strengthen the role of mission driven organizations in society. We apply qualitative methodologies to assess crises facing the sector and to make sense of societal perceptions of voluntary action.
Fall 2021 Research Lab Projects
Our team of seven graduate and undergraduate research assistants is testing innovative qualitative methods on TikTok, TV, and triangulation. We work in small teams to tackle both playful and more serious research endeavors. This year, the team is building several large qualitative datasets where we are exploring racial justice, nonprofit ecologies, and social media engagement. Meet our team, check out our summer projects and follow us on TikTok @UFWileyLab!
