Are you purpose-driven? And do you want to pursue your passion through nonprofit and philanthropic organizations? Because changing the world is not restricted to any degree or major (https://youtu.be/LQjmQXq79xk), you are able to combine your primary area of study, no matter what degree you are pursuing, with this minor's competency-based educational emphasis.
The minor in nonprofit leadership and management empowers students to positively impact the community in which they work. The nonprofit sector in the U.S. is unique in form and function, with more than 1.6 million organizations in the U.S.
The minor is ideal for students enrolled in other majors at ASU who wish to earn a minor that concentrates on the management of nonprofit organizations. Students from various disciplines such as business, communication, education, global studies, museum studies, nursing, public affairs, religious studies, social work, and sustainability find this program a beneficial supplement to their existing program as many find that their career pathways from their degree occur within nonprofit organization forms. Coursework in the minor introduces students to the knowledge and skills for successful professional careers with nonprofit, social sector organizations that exist to improve the quality of life of communities.
This program affords students the opportunity to start their pursuit of the National Certified Nonprofit Professional credential awarded through the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (formerly American Humanics, Inc.): https://www.nonprofitleadershipalliance.org/credential/. Students seeking more information about completing the CNP credential and requirements should refer to the school website.

Incompatible Majors: BS in nonprofit leadership and management
Students pursuing the nonprofit leadership and management bachelor's degree may earn the certified nonprofit professional credential along with their major upon successfully completing both curricular and cocurricular requirements. (Students should see an advisor for details.)

Current ASU undergraduate students may pursue a minor and have it recognized on their ASU transcript at graduation. Students interested in pursuing a minor should consult their academic advisor to declare the minor and to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. Minor requirements appear on the degree audit once the minor is added. Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate by the college or department of either the major program or the minor. Courses taken for the minor may not count toward both the major and the minor. Students should contact their academic advisor for more information.
