New! Inclusive Leadership Series - Click the Certificate tab below for more information.

Employers are looking for individuals who can lead a team, think critically, communicate effectively, build healthy partnerships, and work with a diverse group of individuals in the growing global workplace.

New! Introducing Digital Badging
A digital badge is a shareable micro-credential linked to the university that validates your knowledge or skills. They can be collected to showcase your competency and boost your resume or LinkedIn profile, and other social media outlets. 
We are dedicated to providing you with the tools you need to reach your professional goals. The digital badge movement is one of the most exciting trends in career training, and now you can earn yours, too. Attending and successfully completing modules of our Inclusive Leadership Series and Nonprofit Professional Certificate earns you a digital badge that you can proudly display.
