Nonprofit Management - Registration Opens Today

The Center for Nonprofit Studies and Philanthropy is launching their new Nonprofit Management Summer Session this academic year. The application process for the program opens today.

This new summer program is open to students of all majors. “Our aim is to educate students, those who want to have an impact in the world around them, with the business knowledge that will enable them to use resources more efficiently and serve more effectively,” said Casey Cooper, a professor for the nonprofit minor and Economics and Business Department. “This program allows us to expand the minor and offer an opportunity for students from other schools to come and learn.”

Students enrolled in the program will earn 16 credits and a certificate in nonprofit management by spending 10 weeks studying together and serving local nonprofit organizations.

“This is also a great opportunity to give back,” said Cooper. “Since the launch of the Center, local nonprofit organizations have come to us asking to be involved in Gordon’s programs through training and interns. Now we get to deliver, and hopefully in a big way.”
