The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance program was originally founded as the American Humanics program at Arizona State University in 1980 with the support of the Phoenix Rotary Club 100 and local nonprofit organizations. They recognized the need for highly skilled leaders in the nonprofit sector. American Humanics officially changed its name to the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance in 2011. Through the dedication of students and the support of the community, ASU has evolved into the nation's leader among the more than 50 universities affiliated with the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance.
At the 2018 Alliance Management Institute, ASU's Nonprofit Leadership Alliance won the prestigious Campus Program Excellence Award, and alumna Nora B. Slawik received the Certified Nonprofit Professional of the Year Award.
Nonprofit organizations are in the business of making the world a better place. They change lives and solve our communities' toughest problems - but are only as effective as their leadership. Dedicated and skilled professional staff members are needed to create and orchestrate programs, raise funds, promote the cause, work with youth, and carry out many other essential functions.
The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance's national certificate and CNP credential opens up a world of opportunity for graduates and greatly increases employability. Students can look forward to beginning careers in the following areas, among many others:
