Rural Nonprofit Leadership Concentration

Become a leader who rural nonprofits need with a rural nonprofit concentration as part of your Master of Nonprofit Leadership at Pacific University.

Rural nonprofits face challenges from limited donor bases, developing local collaborations with local governments and other organizations, maintaining staff, and community engagement. Students explore these and other challenges and opportunities of rural and small community nonprofits through conversation with seasoned practitioners, funders, and board governance consultants in the rural nonprofit-themed colloquium tracks (NPL 502 and NPL 560) during virtual residencies. Specific topics will be addressed from student requests and current trends in the profession.

Students also choose a rural nonprofit focus for their field placement or project in action (NPL 600).
