Nonprofit Administration

Jonathan R. Tompkins, (Professor of Political Science), Advisor

The interdisciplinary minor in nonprofit administration concentrates on nonprofit board and committee development, fund raising principles and practices, nonprofit financial management, human resource development, nonprofit management and program planning, risk management, and nonprofit marketing. It is designed to complement students' major areas of study and prepare them to enter careers in the nonprofit sector.

Students pursuing the nonprofit administration minor will have the option to obtain certification from the national American Humanics organization if they complete additional requirements that include participation in the campus-based student association, extra-curricular training sessions and events, and attendance at a national American Humanics Management Institute. The director of the Office for Civic Engagement serves as the director for the national certification program. Students should contact that office for information regarding certification.
