All our work in organizations is grounded in an operational structure. This course focuses on the most common operational structure under which chaplains and other religious professionals operate. Students learn the basic operational components of an organization: budget, organizational charts, strategic relationships, etc., which enable them to navigate their role more effectively as an agent of change within the system.
