black vertical rule New season starts September 16!

A session on strategic planning will kick off eight NEW live satellite events, which together comprise the certificate program. Now heading into its second year, this series teaches the fundamentals of management for nonprofit organizations. It's the first nationally-available certificate in this topic from a major university!

The series presents a unique opportunity: your organization can become an educational provider or expand current educational offerings. Beyond meeting your own internal training needs, the series can fulfill outreach goals and potentially generate revenue.

How does it work? "Excellence..." is a complete learning package, ready for you to re-market locally. In fact, most of your work is already done. The curriculum, assignments, and supporting materials have all been created for you. You even get a marketing kit and facilitator training guide. All that's left to do is make it happen in your community.

Individuals interested in taking the course can use our map of downlink sites to locate a site near you that's offering it.

We hope you'll join us!
