Dr. Susan Appe's research focuses on government-nonprofit relations and the dimensions and evolution of the nonprofit sector in both developed and developing countries. Currently she is examining how government policy influences and shapes civil society and nonprofit organizations and their work in social development; and how and why nonprofit organizations form national-level networks and their implications. In addition, Dr. Appe researches the challenges and opportunities in nonprofit management education, particularly in the context of Latin America, and she is also studying the development of international service learning in public affairs education. She has published articles related to government-nonprofit relations and collaborative governance and has taught several courses in arts management, public administration, and public policy.
