The Non-Profit Institute (NPI) includes 40+ hours of professional development instruction.  Each session in the program is designed to:


  • Promote the effectiveness of nonprofit leaders, including executive directors, CEOs, managers, and Board members
  • Refine the skills of experienced directors as well as help prepare entry level managers for new roles in the organization
  • Enhance current job performance by providing a "tool box" of practical skills and knowledge for day-to-day operations
  • Promote excellence in nonprofit management

Certificate Requirements: Participants must complete at least 20 of the 26 sessions to successfully earn the certificate in Nonprofit Management. (The Opening Session and Graduation do not count towards this requirement.)

The Non-Profit Institute certificate program is offered biennially.
