The Seattle University Master of Nonprofit Leadership (MNPL) program offers a practicum for graduate students during their second year of studies. The MNPL practicum is designed to: (1) provide regional nonprofits with high quality consultation in select areas of nonprofit leadership and management, and (2) allow our graduate students to apply their education and develop their nonprofit leadership skills through practical application. Each fall, we seek regional nonprofits that are interested in consultation in one of the following areas: board governance; finance; fundraising; marketing; program evaluation; or strategic planning. Once matched, individual students are available to work with an organization for 3 to 5 hours a week from December through April. Under the supervision of our faculty, the students conduct assessments, analyze opportunities, and deliver implementation-ready recommendations to the organization.
