Passion is care in action. It’s doing work you believe in for a cause you value. With the right blend of commitment, knowledge and talent, you can conquer a challenging career that can be truly rewarding. As a nonprofit professional in the making, you probably already have the commitment. In the SDSU Leadership and Management of Nonprofit Organizations (LMNO) Program, you’ll acquire the knowledge and develop the talents to engage in your cause.

So what’s your cause – youth, children, the arts, education, animal welfare, the environment, human services, or international affairs? Is it something else? Whatever it is, LMNO at SDSU will help you convert your passion into action.
