Rockhurst University’s Nonprofit Leadership Studies program prepares students for careers and leadership roles with nonprofit organizations. Students achieve foundation and professional development competencies through coursework,  community-based research and service-learning projects, and a 300-hour supervised internship with a nonprofit organization. Rockhurst’s Nonprofit Leadership professors are highly credentialed professionals who bring their extensive nonprofit sector experience and networks to the classroom. Small class sizes provide a comfortable, interactive learning environment and foster rich discussions. Day and evening courses are offered for students’ convenience.

With 1.4 million 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in the U.S. and 7,500 in Kansas City alone, employment and leadership opportunities abound. Nonprofit organizations need talented, creative people with diverse skills and experiences to lead and manage programs, staff, volunteers, and resources. This work is more than a job—our graduates find it to be part of a life of meaning and a career that makes an impact for good.
