New Minor in Nonprofit Leadership

Posted by Tim on August 14, 2019 in Academics, New Programs

The Social Sciences Interdisciplinary program (IDP) is pleased to offer a new Minor in Nonprofit Leadership, open to all UB undergraduates!

The Minor in Nonprofit Leadership provides students with an understanding of how nonprofit organizations differ from corporations and government entities in their structure and function, as well as exposure to practical skills (e.g., development, grantwriting, program evaluation) and topics related to working in nonprofit organizations. The minor is ideal for students who are interested in social or public service, who care about advancing a cause, or who want to have a social or civic impact on their communities. Students may use a limited number of approved courses from multiple UB departments to fulfill the minor, making it an excellent complement to a wide range of undergraduate majors.

The minor consists of 18 credit hours, including two required courses (SSC 103 and SSC 235) and a variety of elective options. Interested students are encouraged to review the program requirements. Questions may be directed to the IDP office in 203 Clemens or at 716-645-2245 x0.
