Institute of Nonprofit Leadership and Community Development

Welcome to the Institute of Nonprofit Leadership and Community Development!

The Institute of Nonprofit Leadership and Community Development is a collaborative of the University at Albany’s Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy; the Schools of Public Health, Social Welfare, Criminal Justice, and Business; the College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cyber Security; Albany Law School and Albany Medical College. The Institute embodies the University at Albany’s priorities of engagement and service.

Our goal is to work collaboratively with the community, business, and nonprofit sectors to:

  • Develop, strengthen, and retain a robust talent and leadership pipeline for the nonprofit sector in the greater Capital Region;
  • Create affordable professional development opportunities for nonprofit leaders;
  • Support community-based research on issues affecting the nonprofit sector and communities they serve;
  • Stimulate the exchange of ideas among researchers and nonprofit practitioners;
  • Equip the nonprofit workforce by expanding nonprofit management degrees, certificate programs, and courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

We are excited to partner with the nonprofit and business community to identify community strengths and challenges and build innovative, creative, and multi-disciplinary solutions that best serve the needs of the Greater Capital Region.

We look forward to partnering with you!
