Nonprofit Leadership

Nonprofit Leadership

  • The nonprofit sector plays an essential role in providing important public services and in working to achieve social justice. The sector continues to grow, and the role of nonprofit agencies continues to expand in civil society. There is a rise in volunteerism, but the supply of effective, trained leadership in nonprofit agencies has not kept pace with demand. The future strength of the sector is dependent on recruiting high quality individuals who will make nonprofit work a conscious career choice.

    Degree offered: minor

    The nonprofit leadership minor is complementary to many majors, including business, criminal justice, environmental studies, liberal studies, nursing, psychology, public affairs, social work, sociology, and theology and religious studies. Students interested in the nonprofit leadership minor are encouraged to meet with the deputy coordinator or director to discuss their interests and career goals and to plan their courses of study.
