BIOGRAPHY


Dr. Kimberly Wiley is an Assistant Professor of Nonprofit Leadership and Community Sciences in the Department of Family, Youth, and Community Sciences. She has a 60% teaching and 40% research appointment. She earned her doctorate from Florida State University in Public Administration with an emphasis on nonprofit organizations.

Dr. Wiley researches relationship between nonprofit organizations and their public funders. She has particular interest in domestic violence advocacy organizations serving families and youth. Dr. Wiley has published (or has articles forthcoming) in Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Journal of Public Administration Education, and Journal of Nonprofit Education and Leadership

Before joining the faculty at UF, she served as Assistant Professor of Nonprofit Management in the Department of Public Administration at the University of Illinois Springfield where she coordinated the Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management. Dr. Wiley brings with her thirteen years of nonprofit experience in the field of victim advocacy in local, state, and national organizations. After serving in multiple capacities in three domestic violence shelters in Florida, she accepted a position with the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the statewide administrative organization for Florida’s 42 certified domestic violence centers. There she provided training and technical assistance to Florida’s domestic violence shelters and criminal justice systems. 

Dr. Wiley is responsible for teaching courses in the Organizational Leadership for Nonprofits Minor, including FYC4409 Working with Nonprofits in Community Settings, FYC4622 Program Planning & Evaluation, and FYC4410 Fundraising. 

Outside of the office, she enjoys exploring the local hiking trails with her large family and rambunctious dog.


RESEARCH INTERESTS

Dr. Wiley has three current research projects. First, she leads a collaborative project examining how state-funded nonprofit organizations survived the 2015-2017 Illinois Budget Impasse. The team is using grounded theory and content analysis of interview and text data. Second, she is leading a team of graduate students to employ summative content analysis to historical documents representing the voices and behaviors within the Battered Women’s Movement from 1978 to 2019. They are examining the policy behavior and social action taken by a national advocacy coalition. Third, using textual analysis of film, Dr. Wiley worked with small groups of undergraduate students to identify and analyze television storylines about volunteering. Messages about voluntary action were interpreted to better understand public views of volunteering and what impact these perceptions may have on volunteer management.
