Nonprofit Executive Leadership Institute

Welcome Quanisha Green, the new Associate Director for the Center for Professional Development, administrator of the Nonprofit Executive Leadership Institute (NELI)! Read more about Quanisha here.

Since 2004, The Nonprofit Executive Leadership Institute (NELI) has helped nonprofit leaders become more effective agents of change. 

We believe in the power of people to transform their lives and their communities. We understand that no one individual can institute transformative change alone. We know that change makers need allies and a supportive community.

Our trainers foster that community feeling and create a learning environment that invites you to stretch beyond your comfort zone. Our programs provide a balance between cultivating your growth as an individual leader and helping you strengthen your skills in organizational capacity building. 

NELI is cohort-based. We want you to learn as much from one another as you do from our faculty. You will gain a network of peers and create connections that will last beyond your graduation.
