Grand Valley State University educates students with the mission to shape their lives, their professions, and their societies. Nowhere is this mission more effectively realized than when Grand Valley alumni become leaders of our voluntary and charitable organizations. Furthermore, there is no better way to prepare students for this role than through a program that builds the theoretical and practical knowledge critical to leading and managing these organizations.
Our program prepares students for careers or advancement in the nonprofit and philanthropic sector through classroom study, applied research, professional development, and field experience. Students will learn to lead and manage philanthropic and nonprofit organizations ethically and effectively, and go beyond traditional boundaries in the pursuit of prosperous, safe, and healthy communities.
The mission of the graduate programs in Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership is to prepare students to act ethically and effectively in leading and managing philanthropic and nonprofit organizations, and to transcend traditional boundaries in the pursuit of prosperous, safe, and healthy communities.
