Increasingly, the U.S. economy and the health of our global communities rely on a robust and highly-functioning nonprofit sector. The public sector, the private sector, and the nonprofit sector all recognize the growing need to collaborate in order to tackle this challenging work.

At the Center for Public & Nonprofit Leadership, we see our role as preparing leaders who can work for the public good across all sectors.

We provide opportunities for Georgetown undergraduate and graduate students to engage in rigorous study, to undertake challenging research, and to experience the real-life application of skills that are required of cross-sector leaders.

The Center offers leadership development and executive education programs, including our signature Nonprofit Management Executive Certificate, with a focus on serving underrepresented populations.

The Center has launched a new Veterans Nonprofit Leadership Initiative, with the goal of improving the support for our veterans returning from war. The Initiative includes executive education, case study research, and public issue forums highlighting best practices.

Finally, the Center focuses attention on philanthropy education and research–through its endowed Waldemar A. Nielsen Chair in Philanthropy—strengthening the efforts of individual donors as well as institutions to use philanthropy to address intractable social problems.
