Mission Statement

The Center for Nonprofit Leadership promotes excellence in leadership by providing multifaceted resources that are responsive to the needs of the nonprofit sector. The center offers programs and services for executive directors, boards of directors and new and emerging leaders and their organizations. The center is committed to supporting and building leadership in underserved communities.

The mission of the Center for Nonprofit Leadership is based on a belief that organizational effectiveness is achieved through excellence in leadership.

Based in the School of Social Work at Adelphi University, the Center for Nonprofit Leadership offers services that focus on four areas:

  • Leadership development, targeting new and emerging leaders
  • Leadership support, providing resources for current executive directors
  • Leadership transition, working with departing leaders and their organizations
  • Nonprofit governance, focusing on the crucial work of the board of directors and its leadership role that includes strategic planning and merger exploration

The Center for Nonprofit Leadership addresses both leader development (individual skills) and leadership development (organizational skills). The delivery models vary according to need and include formal training, peer-to-peer networking, mentoring and onsite programs.
