New Not-for-Profit Management Certificate Program Announced
Salem College will offer a new certificate program in Not-for-Profit Management beginning in the fall of 2009, according to Dean of the College and Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs Ann McElaney-Johnson.
Students interested in the program will apply through the Fleer Center for Adult Education at Salem College.
While Salem already has a major in Not-for-Profit Management, the new certificate program is designed for non-degree candidates who are assuming entry level positions in small to medium size organizations; want to be more effective in their current not-for-profit positions; or hope to advance in their not-for-profit careers.
The certificate program — which can be completed in nine months to two years, depending upon workload — will feature courses in fundraising, organizational planning and evaluation, management and governance, financial management and communication concepts. It will not only supply a rigorous base of knowledge for candidates but also the opportunity for “hands on” contact with not-for-profit agencies in the Triad.
Director of the certificate program will be Dr. Doug Borwick, director of the not-for-profit management degree program at Salem as well as non-profit management consultant, workshop facilitator, author and speaker since 1992.
