Diane Kaplan Vinokur’s research focuses on the application of social psychological and organizational theories to human service organizations and their personnel. She studies the implications of such findings for non-profit management and social work practice.

Her most recent study, “The Under One Roof Project,” investigates the benefits and challenges of nonprofit centers to their co-located nonprofit tenant organizations and their communities.

In 1997, Vinokur co-founded the University of Michigan Nonprofit and Public Management Center, a collaboration of the Schools of Social Work, Business, and Public Policy, which promotes education, research, and community and public service, and provides career consultation.
