About the Nonprofit Management Institute

Since 1993, the ASU Lodestar Center's Nonprofit Management Institute (NMI) has taught nonprofit professionals the most up-to-date trends affecting the sector today; how to lead and manage staff, volunteers and board members more effectively; and how to make strategic planning, marketing, fundraising and resource development work for you.

Our programs are open to individuals of all educational backgrounds and levels of experience who are seeking professional development, from staff and management to volunteers and board members, as well as private-sector professionals seeking a career change. We fill a unique educational niche by helping hundreds of working adults reach their professional development goals.

With online and in-person certificate programs, NMI is dedicated to building the capacity for those who lead, manage and support nonprofit organizations.
