The creation of this Institute was in response to current trends in the U.S. economy and in public policy that underscore the need for more effective leaders, managers, and professional staff throughout the nonprofit sector. Labor force statistics project dramatic increases in employment in this sector. Emerging changes in public policy suggest that demands on nonprofit organizations will increase sharply and that well-prepared leaders will be essential for the survival and health of these organizations.
The Institute seeks to prepare leaders who will strengthen the effectiveness of nonprofit organizations throughout Georgia and the nation. Its faculty develop knowledge through research, disseminate it through teaching, and provide services to the State through continuing education, consultation, and technical assistance. The Institute provides students with knowledge and skills necessary to effective performance of nonprofit organizations, and it provides opportunities to disseminate and apply this learning directly with organizations in the region.
Please note, this Master of Arts program is also called Masters in Nonprofit Management. To date, The University of Georgia is one of only three schools in the nation that has an established center for Nonprofit studies.
The director for the Institute for Nonprofit Organizations at the University of Georgia is Dr. Michelle Carney.
