The Leadership and Management of Nonprofit Organizations (LMNO) Minor prepares students to enhance nonprofit organizations. This minor consists of 18 credits of coursework. Check out course descriptions and program requirements for the LMNO Minor in the Online Catalog.

Students need to declare their intentions to minor in LMNO by contacting the program leader, Ms. Kim Gustafson.

In addition to earning the LMNO minor, students have the option of becoming a Certified Non-profit Professional through the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance.  The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance is a national alliance of colleges, universities, and nonprofit organizations dedicated to educating, preparing, and certifying professionals to strengthen and lead nonprofit organizations.  

The certification, recognized by nonprofit organizations, signifies that the student has met foundational and professional competencies of the organization and is well prepared for a dynamic career in the nonprofit sector.

To become a Certified Non-profit Professional students must: 

  • Achieve the ten foundational and professional competencies
  • Complete a 300-hour internship with one nonprofit organization
  • Participate in the Non-profit Leadership Alliance student organization
  • Attend the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Management Institute

To learn more about the LMNO minor or the Non-profit Leadership Alliance, contact Ms. Kim Gustafson, program leader.
