Nonprofit Administration

   

The Nonprofit Administration Program (NPA) can lead to a meaningful career of helping others by leading and serving others. Students are educated to be nonprofit leaders and managers through service learning---learning by doing. Students are actively involved in nonprofit agencies, gaining understanding of the nonprofit world through a hands-on approach.

Spend time doing, observing and understanding: Students are required to work with actual community nonprofits during class projects and assignments.

Blood drives for the American Red Cross: Students may join The American Humanics Student Association, a student group linked with the NPA program that annually sponsors drives.

Awarded nonprofit agencies $100,000 through actual student grants: Grantwriting classes provide necessary skills to write successful grants.

Internships: Students can become actively involved in a variety of nonprofit organizations providing services to their community.

"How wonderful it is that nobody needs to wait a single moment before starting to improve the world."
     - Anne Frank

“I have been and continue to be impressed with the overall knowledge that students completing the Lindenwood University Non-Profit Administration Program have upon graduation. The basic knowledge of what I would consider are key to entering the non-profit field, seem to be top of mind with all their students. As an 18 year employee in the non-profit field, I am encouraged that such a quality educational opportunity exists for our future leaders in this critical field.”
