The Center for Nonprofit Leadership, housed  in the Williamson College of Business Administration, provides academic programming and professional development experiences for students interested in pursuing a career in nonprofit management and/or serving the community. The Center offers a certificate and minor in Nonprofit Leadership. Both the minor and certificate can be combined with any major on campus. The nonprofit sector offers a wide range of employment opportunities in many different professional disciplines as well as the opportunity to "make a living, making a difference."

Also available through the Center for Nonprofit Leadership is the Student Nonprofit Leadership Organization (SNLO). SNLO is an organization for currently-enrolled students pursuing a baccalaureate degree. The organization provides professional nonprofit management experiences through site visits, community service projects, guest lecturers, case study exercises, and the planning of fundraising events.
