Scholarship & Other Writing

Dr. McDougle’s research focuses on nonprofits and philanthropy. Her current work explores how, and to what extent, prosocial pedagogies in higher education can be used to cultivate student commitments to long-term philanthropic engagement, advance the civic mission of colleges and universities, and strengthen communities.

Using a variety of methods and methodologies (e.g., narrative inquiry, participant surveys, secondary data analysis, and visual arts), Dr. McDougle explores these topics by examining relationships between prosocial pedagogies (e.g., experiential philanthropy) and several outcomes, such as the formation and development of prosocial identities among students and distributional equity in philanthropic grantmaking among funders.
