Nonprofit Leadership Alumni Association (NPLAA)

The Nonprofit Leadership Alumni Association (NPLAA) is designed to keep graduates of the University of Pennsylvania’s Nonprofit Leadership Master of Science program connected to each other and to the program’s key goals and principles. During our time in the program, we laid the foundation for professional and personal journeys as collaborative agents of innovation and impact.

The NPLAA serves as a resource for current students and administration; as ambassadors for the Nonprofit Leadership program; and as a group through which all NPL alumni can network and continue teaching and learning from one another. The NPLAA represents the voice of NPL alumni, encourages alumni support of the School, and informs alumni about issues that advance the program’s growth and development.
