Community and Nonprofit Leadership at the UW-Madison School of Human Ecology


The University of Wisconsin-Madison. A campus with a deep history of community
engagement and home to the Wisconsin Idea, the principle that the university should improve
people’s lives beyond the classroom. Within the Big Ten campus is the School of
Human Ecology—SoHE—a smaller school where faculty and advisors work closely with students
to develop their skills and interests while preparing them for careers they can be passionate about. SoHE is one of a small number of schools in
the nation to offer a Community and Nonprofit Leadership major, a degree that uses outreach and applied research to develop leaders for the growing non-profit world. Our engaged Community and Nonprofit faculty
and instructors guide and inspire students so that they can turn the issues and causes
that are important to them into meaningful careers. “If you want to make a difference in our
world, this major provides you with the tools and resources to make your ideas and
passions a reality. SoHE’s smaller class sizes closely connect
you to faculty and other students, helping to build your network and empowering you to
make an impact beyond the classroom.” Group projects and built-in internship programs
focus on finding solutions to existing social problems, fostering leadership skills inside
the SoHE classroom and out in the real world. The Center for Community and Nonprofit Studies
is an unparalleled hub for students, faculty, professionals and community partners to collaborate
on action-driven research and outreach projects. Think creatively—solve professionally—act
compassionately with a Community and Nonprofit Leadership Degree. The University of Wisconsin-Madison School
of Human Ecology. This is where you belong.
