Nonprofit Management


Greetings Nonprofit Leaders! Currently the department of Governmental Affairs offers workshops uniquely designed for you current and future professionals working in the nonprofit sector. These workshops are packaged together into The Professional Certificate in Nonprofit Management. We have been fortunate to offer this certificate to you for the past seven years. Within the past years we have taken a look at the current environment in nonprofit sector, our students' evaluations and future educational goals, as a result we have updated the curriculum to address current needs. As a continuing education training program, it is geared to people seeking training other than through a master's degree program or a credit-based graduate certificate. Join us as we continue to serve the nonprofit community!
