Non-Profit Management

The objective of the nonprofit management is to prepare students for careers in the management and administration of nonprofit organizations. The curriculum provides students the professional skills necessary to be effective nonprofit board members, executive directors, grant writers, fundraisers, event planners, or volunteers. Students will learn how nonprofit organizations become and stay incorporated, attain funding, impact the community, secure and maintain social legitimacy, work with the public and private sectors, and recruit and retain effective employees and volunteers to advance their specific missions. Non-profit courses offer a mixture of classroom and hands-on experience to students seeking to work in the nonprofit setting. These courses allow students to interact with nonprofit mentors as they learn to apply classroom knowledge and techniques to real-life nonprofit management situations. In addition, students will choose electives that synchronize with the above courses or to best meet their career goals.
