Nonprofit Board Training Program

The EMU Nonprofit Board Training Program seeks to provide members of the EMU community with real life nonprofit Board experience to cultivate voluntary leadership in the community. The long term goal is to create a more diverse pipeline of future nonprofit leaders for Washtenaw County. Program participants include local nonprofit organizations and EMU students, faculty and staff who wish to serve as volunteer administrative leaders.

The program is currently in its pilot stage with EMU MPA graduate students serving on the Boards of Directors for the Ann Arbor YMCA and Riverside Arts Center. After the end of the pilot stage, we hope to expand the program to more nonprofit organizations and EMU community members who wish to serve.
