Taking Leadership to the Next Level: 10 Nonprofit Leaders to Know

The past year has been a critical time for nonprofits, as many have fought courageously to keep their communities safe while ensuring their own organizations survive and thrive. Despite the many challenges nonprofits have faced, the Nonprofit Leadership Center saw a 48% increase in professional development participation during 2020 from the previous year, reflecting the promise and power of lifelong learning to address critical issues facing the nonprofit sector and our communities. That momentum is especially apparent in the nonprofit leaders who choose to invest in our shared future as part of the Certificate in Nonprofit Management.

In collaboration with the University of Tampa, the Nonprofit Leadership Center offers a graduate-level Certificate in Nonprofit Management, in which candidates are immersed in a life-changing, 15-month educational experience that explores every aspect of nonprofit leadership while working collaboratively to solve real-world challenges. 

The 2021-22 Certificate in Nonprofit Management program recently launched at the University of Tampa, and we’re thrilled to introduce you to the 10 nonprofit leaders who have chosen to invest in themselves as part of this year’s program.
