Upon receiving his Ph.D. in music composition from the Eastman School of Music, he went to work for the Arts Council of Rochester (New York) where he created the Arts Development Program. His subsequent work led him through performing arts event production to organizational management (he founded the North Carolina Composers Alliance) and finally to teaching about all aspects of arts and not-for-profit management.
In 2002, as an outgrowth of his informal work with not-for-profits and the insights that years of teaching provided, he founded Not-for-Profit Vision. Rooted in decades of college classroom experience, a distinctive feature of Dr. Borwick's consulting services and workshops is his ability to synthesize and present complex issues in readily understandable forms.
Dr. Borwick is passionate about the importance of the not-for-profit sector to the health and well-being of society. It is this commitment which has led him to develop ways to provide management support services which are affordable to all segments of the not-for-profit community.
Dr. Borwick's monograph We're Not in Kansas Anymore: Not-for-Profit vs. For-Profit Management is a primer on the essential nature of not-for-profit management. Don Wells , Director of the Duke University Certificate Program in Nonprofit Management has said of We're Not in Kansas Anymore , "Doug Borwick knows the sector, appreciates its uniqueness, and writes with the clarity and truth that stems from having been there. It is a worthwhile read – and a good one to share with all Board Members."
In addition to his work in arts and not-for-profit management, Dr. Borwick has long been active in the field of leadership theory. He presented papers on the topic at the first three national conferences on Leadership and the Liberal Arts. Some of his work in this field can be found in this website. (See Leadership Articles .)
