- Curriculum Vitae (CV)
Dr. John (Jack) Azzaretto is a Professor of Professional and Community Leadership whose research includes examination of social entrepreneurship. This is a concept increasingly important to nonprofit and government leaders. Social entrepreneurs find what is not working and solve the problem by spreading the solution, communicating effectively to stakeholders, being persuasive, and changing the system.
Azzaretto is exploring various aspects of social entrepreneurship in public, independent and education organizations. He has integrated concepts on social entrepreneurship in his graduate courses on nonprofit administration and leadership.
Azzaretto, who has a Master’s and Doctorate in Public Administration from the University of Southern California, is a Vietnam veteran.
He has studied continuing professional education – its effectiveness, problems and accountability – as well as skill building and budget administration for local government supervisors. He has written book chapters, journal articles and presented on various aspects of continuing and international education, and practical and professional ethics.
He has been a UWF faculty member since 2006.
