UTSA is one of 10 offering nonprofit certification

(Feb. 18, 2005)--The University of Texas at San Antonio is now one of 10 universities in the nation to offer graduate students certification in nonprofit management.

The only approved university in Texas to offer certification courses to graduate students, UTSA recently received the endorsement by American Humanics (AH).

"I am truly excited about this opportunity," said Sandie Palomo-Gonzalez, UTSA executive director for the American Humanics Program. "This program will better prepare students for careers in the public and nonprofit sectors through classroom and real-world experience.

AH, a national alliance of colleges, universities and nonprofit organizations prepares and certifies college students for careers in nonprofits. UTSA graduate students pursuing AH certification enroll in coursework offered through the Department of Public Administration. They also gain valuable real-world experience as they intern in nonprofit agencies and attend the annual American Humanics Management Institute.

The Center for Policies Studies (CPS) will oversee program implementation. CPS is an interdisciplinary applied research and outreach center focusing on areas of public administration and governmental affairs of critical importance such as environment and development policy and administration, social policy and administration, and public and nonprofit management.
