In these challenging times, there is no better time to change the world through a career in the nonprofit sector. 

Register now or learn more.

With the nonprofit sector employing approximately 12.3 million people, there are employment opportunities in large and small nonprofits ranging from cultural centers to nonprofit hospitals, churches to food banks, schools to performance venues, community improvement associations to research foundations and more.

“Nonprofits impact nearly everyone,” said UD’s Signe C. Bell, director of nonprofit and community programs for UD’s Center for Community Research and Service. “A career in the nonprofit sector gives you so many opportunities to impact so many people in different ways, knowing that you are really making a difference in the world.”

The University of Delaware’s new Nonprofit Management Essentials Online Course was created to help professionals gain an understanding of nonprofit organizations and the issues that managers face in this impactful and growing field.
