Nonprofit Management Minor
As UNO continues to serve as the State’s premiere metropolitan university, the Nonprofit Management Minor exemplifies UNO’s metropolitan and collaborative extension to the community.
Along with the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s strategic plan, the School of Public Administration upholds the esteemed pleasure of placing students first and achieving academic excellence all while engaging with the community.
By entrusting students with the necessary information to lead, manage, and ignite change within the nonprofit sector, our university continues to rise to the forefront of community engagement.
Upon completion of the Nonprofit Management Minor, students will have the necessary skills needed to work in the nonprofit field.
- To equip students with the knowledge and competencies to successfully manage and lead organizations in the nonprofit sector.
- To provide a foundation in financial management, facilitating community change, marketing, and managing volunteers and staff with a nonprofit organization.
- To complement a wide variety of majors across the university system.
The nonprofit sector is on the rise, with wages and employment exceeding both private and government entities the past decade. With 1.6 million registered nonprofits in the U.S., the need to educate and empower UNO students with the skills to lead the nonprofit sector in the Omaha metro is crucial. As interest in the nonprofit sector continues to climb, so will the need to service the Omaha community and the State of Nebraska in its effort to meet the needs of its growing population. The Nonprofit Management Minor is open to students in any discipline area at UNO.
