Continuing Education, Department of Public and Nonprofit Studies Partner For New Certificate Program

The Georgia Southern University Division of Continuing Education and Department of Public and Nonprofit Studies have partnered to offer a brand new certificate program. The Nonprofit Management and Leadership Workshop Series will take place October 5-9, 2020 at the Armstrong Center in Savannah, Ga.

This five-day program is focused on practical skill building and covers a range of management principles including board governance, budgeting, grant writing, strategic planning and volunteer management among others.

“As we work through the COVID-19 crisis, the nonprofit sector landscape is experiencing dramatic shifts in a number of key areas such as service delivery, fundraising and philanthropy, and volunteer management,” said Trent Davis, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Public and Nonprofit Studies. “This strategic partnership will allow us to bring practical, relevant and timely skills based training to nonprofit professionals in Savannah and surrounding areas.”

While the program is certificate-earning, there are also drop-in rates available for those looking to hone a specific skill to better serve their organization. Each session is taught by a professor in the Department of Public and Nonprofit Studies.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a hardship rate is available for those who qualify. Anyone interested in registering for the program may find more information at

For more information on the hardship rate or other adult program offerings from the Division of Continuing Education, please contact Deedee Southerlin, Ed.D., at
