The Center for Nonprofit Management

The Center for Nonprofit Management at Stonehill College seeks to build the management and leadership capacity of community-based nonprofit organizations throughout southeastern Massachusetts and northern Rhode Island.

The Center is focused on enhancing critical management skills, while also fostering relationships with and among the region’s diverse community-based organizations so that they may better achieve their missions.

Drawing on the expertise within the community and the College, the Center works closely with local organizations to identify and address a range of management and governance needs.
