Nonprofit Leadership Alliance/Graduate College of Social Work
405 Social Work, 4th floor
The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (NLA) prepares undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students from all majors for careers in the nonprofit sector. This program offers a professional credential of Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) and a nationally recognized certification. Students must complete academic requirements, participate in leadership activities and complete an internship to be eligible for CNP certification. Numerous Houston-area nonprofit agencies provide internships and assist with job placement locally. Students pursuing a bachelors degree in CLASS or in College of Education's Human Development and Family studies major can substitute NLA certification for their minor. Business majors only need one extra course to fulfill the academic requirements for CNP certification.
