The Nonprofit Academy for Excellence at the University of Utah - Call for Applications!
The core strategy of the Nonprofit Academy Certificate Program is a commitment to professional principle and best practice standards. Launched by the University of Utah in 2007, the Academy was collaboratively built with the community, academicians, consultants, and practitioners. The Nonprofit Academy aims to enhance professionalism among those engaged in the nonprofit sector whether as an executive director, staff member, board member, or volunteer. We are proud of the more than 500 participants who have invested in their professional development and contributed to the sustainability of their nonprofit organizations. In these interactive classes, key concepts are demonstrated using examples provided by the instructors. Participants will practice what they have learned by developing and applying strategies to their own circumstances. Participants will also learn from each other and develop relationships that are an essential part of building successful nonprofit organizations.
"The Academy provides a service for which I am immensely grateful.  On a personal level, the exposure to new ideas helps me stretch my organizational creativity; on a professional level, I can see that Utah nonprofits benefit from the professionalizing influence.  I could probably piece together some of this education through a careful selection of books and travelling to expensive training across the country, but I would undoubtedly find the time and money spent had a much lower return on investment.  The Academy provides a greatest hits of nonprofit leadership and management with the added bonus of all of the local networking that students and instructors do in and around the classes.  The Academy is a great asset to the local nonprofit community." - Academy participant
