The ASU Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation and the ASU School of Community Resources & Development celebrated the newest graduates of the Master of Nonprofit Leadership and Management (MNLM) program on December 7, 2016 at the Arizona Community Foundation in Phoenix. This semester 13 master’s candidates successfully completed all requirements to graduate. During the graduation reception, attendees and guests learned the many ways these talented graduate students have impacted the nonprofit sector through their “Capstone Project Poster Presentations.”

The following are the newest graduates of the Master of Nonprofit Leadership and Management (MNLM) program:

  • Abby Elsener
  • Alexa Vale
  • Bayan Dwaik
  • Cambria Bowman
  • Carissa Oberlin
  • Christopher Haines

Also that evening, 12 master’s degree candidates and alumni were inducted into the Fall 2016 class of the Nu Lambda Mu international honor society – a special national honor society for graduate students specifically in nonprofit programs. The society was established in 2012 by the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council (NACC) to recognize students dedicated to the study of nonprofit management, philanthropy, and social entrepreneurship and enterprise. Nu Lambda Mu seeks to advance the study of nonprofit organizations and their function in society, and to promote scholarly achievement among those who engage in these academic pursuits. Current students, as well as degreed alumni, are eligible for this honor society if they have achieved a GPA of 3.7 or higher and have completed at least half of their degree coursework. By encouraging rigorous study in the field of public serving organizations, the Nu Lambda Mu Honor Society promotes the professionalization and ethical conduct of all who pursue careers of service.

ASU's first induction class was Fall 2014 and, with this fall’s inductees, there are now 32 members of ASU’s Nu Lambda Mu Honor Society. The following were inducted this past Wednesday evening:

  • Robert Billings
  • Christy Dargus
  • Abigail Elsener
  • Christopher Haines
  • Anna Midkiff
  • Carissa Oberlin
  • Alexis Roeckner
  • Yissel Salafsky
  • Jonathan Short
  • Eric Spicer
  • Laura Unkefer
