Nonprofit Leadership Program (NLP)

http://www.und.edu/dept/nlcp/

Heather Helgeson (Program Director)

The Nonprofit Leadership Program is a multidisciplinary program within the College of Business and Public Administration. This program is primarily directed toward students who want to acquire skills and enhance their qualifications for service in the nonprofit sector.

The program corresponds well with the Nonprofit track of the Public Administration Major. 

The Nonprofit Leadership Program offers two course options, an 18-credit Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership, or a 21-credit Minor in Nonprofit Leadership. Both programs complement any major area of study. The program will develop students’ competencies in understanding nonprofit organizations, the role of meeting human needs, and the diversity of groups in society. Students acquire the competencies for this program through coursework as well as hands-on learning through service work in the community and internships with nonprofit organizations.

The Nonprofit Leadership Program is affiliated with The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance, a national organization that establishes competencies and affiliates with nonprofit leadership programs in colleges and universities and awards all graduates of Alliance Campus programs, the Certified Nonprofit Professional credential.

The Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP). Awarded to all graduates of Alliance campus programs, the CNP is the first national professional designation of its kind.

The CNP demonstrates that a job candidate possesses critical competencies nonprofits look for when hiring.
