ADM 750 Philanthropy and Community Engagement:

ADM 750 Philanthropy and Community Engagement: Institutional Advancement in Education (3). The purpose of this course is to refine the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to plan and execute innovative approaches to advance the educational institution’s mission by increasing private and public financial support, promoting awareness of the institution to key publics, and involving constituents in the life of the institution. In this era of declining publicly appropriated funds for education at all levels, the role of outside private funds from alumni, friends, corporations, foundations, and other key community stakeholders is growing and increasingly important. Institutional advancement focuses on attracting and generating private support through the identification, research, cultivation, asking, closing, and stewardship of donors and private gifts.

The article “Digging in to edibles” by Tracy Miller (2019, May) covers the growing demand for edible ornamentals among urban and suburban landscapes and the growing trend of incorporating edibles into more traditional ornamental gardens. This trend has come about with the increased interest in homesteading among younger generations and the rising awareness about sustainable food production along with the benefits of home-grown, organic produce.

Many popular edible plants like tomatoes, peppers and garlic are now commonly planted ornamentally along with kale, lettuce varieties and various mustard greens that are not only nutritious but add an aesthetic value to the garden or landscape space. One aspect of using edibles is the availability and versatility of berry shrubs such as blueberry, serviceberry, cranberry, honeyberry and raspberry which grow freely in my region and can be great landscape plants with multiple benefits. Local nurseries and growers would likely benefit from including more edible ornamentals in their stock, especially hedges and shrubs that can also function as privacy hedgerows and decorative placements.

One of the articles I decided to read was written by Jon Bell and it’s called “Growing at The Right Pace”. This article is all about sizing your nursery or other plant related business to meet the markets needs. Currently the nursery market is doing really well and plant sales are the highest that they have been since 2007. This means that many greenhouse producers are trying to increase production, but the qualified labor force is limited so growers are having a hard time finding the workers they need to expand. This limited labor supply though is keeping sales relatively stable and prices high. The article then goes into a little detail on how growers can take advantage of this strong market by using unique branding, increasing incentive for new employees, releasing new variety, and creating long term growth plans.

The information in this article is really useful for the Oregon nursery industry. Growers that are thinking about expanding need to consider how they will attract employees, and change their operation in order to make them more efficient, and maximize profits. This means automatizing their operation more, creating incentive programs for employees, and growing the most desirable crops and varieties.

Select two large competing multinational organisations and gather evidence on the people management

philosophies and strategies of each to enable you to assess and compare the overall contribution of the

‘people resource’ in each to the organisation’s performance and success. It is suggested that, in selecting the competing organisations, you access the Fortune’s Most Admired Companies Listing in Google, The Data Monitor Report in the Business Source Complete and the Yahoo Finance or CNBC websites. Information on the selected companies may be obtained from the organisations’ websites, from case studies or by searching for articles on the organisations in texts and websites such as Glassdoor or Indeed.

In comparing the organisations’ performance, metrics such as their respective P:E ratios, their Revenue

per Employee and their Profit per Employee should be calculated and commented upon. All sources used must be fully referenced and a copy of the final report must be submitted via Turnitin.

The report grade is based on three components: (33%) breadth and depth of research; (33%) quality of

analysis; (33%) quality of presentation. The first component reflects the quantity and quality of material you find on the organization selected. Use as many sources as possible: newspapers, journal articles,

the websites etc. The second component reflects the coherence of your arguments and the

insightfulness of your analysis. The third component reflects the quality of your writing. For example, are thoughts well developed and presented in a logical order? Are spelling and grammar errors avoided? Are figures and tables clear?
