Nonprofit Management Academy

What is Nonprofit Management Academy? 

The Nonprofit Management Academy was established in 1999 by Iowa State University in partnership with the United Way Management Assistance Program to enhance the management skills of those serving nonprofit human services groups, hospitals, government agencies, faith-based organizations, private schools, art and cultural organizations, environmental groups, and others in the nonprofit sector. The program is available to anyone interested in the topics offered.

Through the Nonprofit Management Academy, participants can expect to gain new ideas, contacts and a network of professional support, new information and increased knowledge, and suggestions on how to apply the information presented in each course.

Who should attend?

The Academy welcomes anyone seeking professional development in the area of nonprofit management, including staff, management, volunteers, professional association employees, educators, and private sector employees who wish to make a career change to the nonprofit sector.  Those who are interested in succession planning, building the skills of new managers, or enhancing leadership within the organization are strongly encouraged to participate.
