  • Bisesi Receives Faculty Spirit of Community Award

    April 20, 2011

    College of Arts and Sciences Professor Michael Bisesi, Director, Center for Nonprofit and Social Enterprise Management, and Deputy Executive Director, Institute of Public Service, received the Spirit of Community Award for his many years of service to the community. In addition to impacting the lives of thousands by preparing graduate and undergraduate students to manage and lead nonprofit organizations, Bisesi has been tireless in his personal, direct commitment to the community. Examples include chairing the Public Policy and Community Building committees of United Way of King County; chairing the Finance committee of the Workforce Development Council of Seattle-King County; and serving as board vice-chair and Finance committee chair for Washington Technology Center and board president of 501 Commons (formerly the Executive Service Corps of Washington).  

    A frequent presenter at retreats for staff, management, and boards of directors, Bisesi is known as much for his expertise in organizational development as for his inspiration and motivation.   He has led hundreds of planning and development programs for community, business, professional, student, faculty, and church groups throughout the United States and has taught and consulted in Asia and Europe. 

    Bisesi joined the faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences in 2001. An active scholar, he recently published Compassion and Power: Religion, Spirituality, and Public Administration”(with Professor Russell Lidman) in the International Journal of Public Administration.
