Non-Profit Administration

Advisor: Shelly Moreschini, 719-549-2060

The Minor in Non-Profit Administration is a multidisciplinary program designed for students wanting to pursue careers in non-profit organizations that include the arts, human services, recreation, chambers of commerce, civic efforts, and health care. A variety of suggested electives allows student to focus their coursework toward the type of non-profit career they desire. MCCNM 370, Nonprofit Organizations and Communication, is the only required course in the minor. Other core courses allow for student choice, as do the electives. An internship in a nonprofit organization is also required and can be coordinated with the student’s major area of study. 


Student Learning Outcomes

Three student learning outcomes are directly related to the mission of the nonprofit administration minor: 1) identify basic components of nonprofit organization; 2) develop a strategic plan for a new nonprofit organization; 3) apply knowledge of nonprofit organizations within an internship setting.
