Published: May 21, 2013

The University of Notre Dame Nonprofit
Professional Development
program, located at the Mendoza College of
, is offering a 10-day leadership program for executives in
Catholic organizations. Held July 8-18 in the Giovanini Commons in the
College’s lower level, the Catholic Leadership Certificate Program offers a
range of topics vital for organizational development within the context of
furthering the Catholic mission.

“The leaders attending this program
face some very unique challenges,” said Marc Hardy,
director of Nonprofit Executive Programs. “As with any business, they’re
responsible for creating a strategy of growth, often amidst limited resources
and exponentially increasing demands for services. At the same time, they want
to be effective not just in the business sense, but in serving the Church. We
supply them with a toolkit of knowledge and skills that help them to meet this
twofold challenge.”

Hardy noted that 2013 marks the
fifth year the Catholic Leadership Certificate has been offered as part of the
commitment of the Mendoza College and the Nonprofit Executive Program to
advancing the work of Catholic organizations. The tuition of $495 for the
10-day session, which includes most meals, is steeply discounted to allow
nonprofit executives to attend. Registration deadline is July 1 (Monday).

The program includes sessions in:

  • Employment law
  • Implementing mission in practical ways in everyday
  • Measuring effectiveness and impact
  • Budgeting and finance
  • Nonprofit board governance

The instructors include faculty
members from the Mendoza College and others from the University, as well as
nonprofit executives and consultants. Sister Melanie DiPietro, director of
Seton Hall University Law School Center for Religiously Affiliated
Corporations, will present a special session on canon and civil law.
