Dr. Kim is currently an assistant professor in the Truman School of Public Affairs at the University of Missouri. She came to the university in the fall 2014 semester after earning her doctorate in public administration from Rutgers University’s School of Public Affairs and Administration. Her research interests include nonprofit financial management, the role of nonprofits in civil society, nonprofit arts management, and public-nonprofit partnerships. She is particularly interested in understanding how 501c3 nonprofit organizations balance their service and civic functions. Her articles have appeared in the Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Nonprofit Management and Leadership, American Review of Public Administration, Administration & Society and Journal of Public Budgeting, Accounting & Financial Management. During her doctoral years, she worked as a managing editor of Civic Engagement Magazine that seeks to deepen the discourse about, and underscore our shared commitment to, public service. She was also a member of the 2014 Penn Social Impact Doctoral Fellows Program under the direction of Dr. Peter Frumkin.
