The Nonprofit Leadership and Social Entrepreneurship Institute provides opportunities for personal and professional development to support emerging leaders who want to increase their scope of impact. 

Our limited residency hybrid courses are designed to support busy professionals and to maximize the best of accelerated online learning, face-to-face learning, and community building. In our summer courses, participants start the courses online, come to campus for three intensive days, and after the intensive continue building and applying knowledge with the mentorship of faculty.

This model takes the best of what happens in a professional conference and pairs it with the on-going support as learners continue to develop and evolve their skills over the course of the month. 

Whether you are looking to take classes in order to start a new career or build skills for the path you are on, we can help you take the next steps.
