Nonprofit Leadership – The nonprofit sector has seen steady growth for more than a decade, further emphasizing the importance of effective leadership in this already challenging environment. In this reality of “doing more with less,” a nonprofit leader must not only possess a servant heart, but also a resilient business mind. Notre Dame’s Executive Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership program equips individuals and organizations with the essential management, leadership and strategic skills necessary for becoming effective nonprofit leaders. For example, a soup kitchen’s success once was measured by how many people it fed. Today, government programs and financiers are asking how such efforts improve society. It’s no longer acceptable to just provide meals for the needy. Extra steps, such as providing job training or housing assistance, must be taken to demonstrate a social return on donors’ investment. In short, it’s the leaders who champion these causes who are transforming people’s lives for the better!
