Nonprofit Sector Leadership and Innovation Certificate and Courses

NEW Certificate in Nonprofit Sector Leadership and Innovation (NSLI)

The NSLI certificate (15 credit hours, 5 courses) is designed for anyone who wants to acquire the expertise to pursue paid employment and/or voluntary work in the nonprofit (voluntary, community-based) sector. All courses are grounded in a community-engaged, experiential learning model.

Any student at the University of Regina, including the federated colleges, can enrol in NSLI courses and the certificate program as part of their university studies. Please see your academic advisor to discuss this option.

Anyone in the wider community can take NSLI courses and complete the NSLI certificate by enrolling through the Centre for Continuing Education (CCE).
 

For information on how to register for these courses please contact the VSSN Coordinator, Jen Billan [jennifer.billan@uregina.ca], or the Centre for Continuing Education [cce.studentservices@uregina.ca], or Yvonne Harrison, VSSN Director [yvonne.harrison@uregina.ca].
 

Level/Credential to be Granted:  Certificate
Faculty(ies)/School(s)/Department(s):  Faculty of Arts, Luther College, and Centre for Continuing Education
Program Start Date:  September, 2016
Method of Program Delivery:  Face-to-face (initially) blended, online, and/or LIVE in the future

Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR):
PLAR may be granted for one or more courses, except for NSLI 200, which will be required of all students. PLAR will be determined by the VSSN Director and the Centre for Continuing Education.
 

Changes to the Certificate in Nonprofit Sector Leadership and Innovation are currently underway, moving NSLI 320, 340 and 350 from the list of approved electives to choices become choices for the required three NSLI courses (in addition to NSLI 200, which is required of all students). This change will be effective May 2017, but will be retroactive. In other words, IDS 290AE, taken in Winter 2017, will become NSLI 320 and will serve as a required NSLI course choice.
