Grand Valley State University will offer a Master in Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership (MPNL) degree beginning fall 2014. The new degree was approved by the Board of Trustees at its April 30 meeting in Allendale.
The MPNL will be housed in the School of Public, Nonprofit and Health Administration. In creating the new master’s degree, the experience and expertise of Grand Valley’s Johnson Center for Philanthropy was tapped. The degree will prepare graduate students for leadership positions in the nonprofit sector.
