Our mission is to improve the leadership and effectiveness of nonprofit organizations.
To achieve this, the Institute administers a master’s degree, seminars and workshops for the nonprofit community, supports research opportunities and a graduate certificate program that is open to students in any major as well as to students not enrolled in any other UGA degree and can be earned on campus or online. More than 500 graduates of the certificate and master’s programs have gone on to successful careers in both nonprofit and for-profit organizations.
The Institute was created in response to trends in the U.S. economy and public policy that underscored the need for more effective leaders, managers and professional staff throughout the nonprofit sector. Labor force statistics project dramatic increases in employment in this sector. Well-prepared leaders will be essential for the survival and health of nonprofit organizations.
