The graduate certificate program in nonprofit leadership and management provides students with an understanding of the nonprofit sector's role in society and with knowledge applicable to those who wish to lead and manage these organizations. The objective of this program, offered through the Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions, is to provide students from diverse academic backgrounds with exposure to content needed by leaders in the nonprofit sector, content that includes the understanding of the historical and philosophical context for nonprofit organizations in society, the theory and practice of philanthropy, financial management practices, and other topical content areas. The certificate is ideal when combined with graduate degrees in other areas and when used to provide a core concentration in nonprofit leadership and management.
