The faculty of the Public and Environmental Affairs department, along with its Center for Public Affairs, cooperates with the Arts Management and Adult Degree programs to offer a broad-based certificate which documents that students have achieved an understanding of the management principles for nonprofit organizations. Regardless of what area of emphasis a student’s degree program is centered upon, many graduates will find themselves working in, with, or directing nonprofit enterprises. Understanding principles of nonprofit management and developing tools for such management is critical to future success.

A certificate in Nonprofit Management is available to students in any academic program. It consists of a supporting course structure that is especially complementary to programs of students in the Integrative Leadership Studies nonprofit leadership and leadership in public service emphases, Arts Management majors, and Public Administration majors interested in earning a free-standing certificate. In addition to the coursework, a critical element of the certificate program is the internship experience requirement.
