The executive certificate in public and nonprofit leadership is a 6-credit graduate-level program intended for executives, managers and other professionals from the non-profit, public or civic sectors who wish to enhance their ability to lead volunteers. In a situation where participation cannot be demanded or extracted, the importance of inspiring commitment through the power of mutual influence (as opposed to the power of one’s position) becomes paramount. That is the essence of voluntary leadership.
