About Us

North Park University’s Axelson Center for Nonprofit Management serves the educational needs of nonprofit professionals through undergraduate and graduate degrees and certificate programs, on-site training, and an annual symposium series that addresses contemporary issues and challenges confronting nonprofit organizations.

As a teaching and learning resource for the nonprofit community, The Axelson Center seeks to provide:

  • A highly relevant curriculum teaching leading-edge business practices needed to grow a nonprofit’s base of support and stature
  • Opportunities to network with and learn from experienced peers and to solve specific problems facing your organization through advice from faculty and classmates
  • State-of-the-art knowledge presented by expert faculty with nonprofit management experience
  • Systematic training in all aspects of nonprofit management

The Axelson Center values the input of leaders in the Chicagoland nonprofit community and has established an advisory board comprised of senior-level nonprofit managers. This board plays a vital role in guiding the Center's programming activities.
