Tom Rose, PhD, joined the Hornstein Program in 2020 as instructor of Human Resources Management in Jewish NonProfits. This course considers general principles of HRM and their application to Jewish and other non-profit organizations. Rose is a clinical psychologist who has worked as a consultant and HR executive in the for-profit and not-for-profit worlds.
