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) support nonprofit organizations in select areas of nonprofit leadership and managements. Students work to assess current strategies and make recommendations, 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 a student providing analysis and recommendations in one of the following areas: board governance; finance; fundraising; marketing; program evaluation; advocacy; diversity and equity; or strategic planning. Once matched, individual students are available to work with an organization for 3 to 5 hours a week from December through March. Under the supervision of our faculty, the students conduct assessments, analyze opportunities, and deliver implementation-ready recommendations to the organization. This year there are 10 Practicum placements available.
