Mandel Center teaching award recognizes Nancy Osgood

The 2011 Mandel Center Teaching Award was presented to adjunct instructor Nancy Osgood at this year’s graduation ceremony. Nancy Osgood taught MAND 432, Marketing for Nonprofit Organizations, in the fall of 2010.

They were an amazing and inspiring group.”
