The Public and Nonprofit Leadership Center (PNLC) conducts rigorous and relevant research that builds public and nonprofit capacity. We provide resources, connections, and community for public affairs leaders and managers. We create learning materials that build individual capacity. Our efforts expand the body of public affairs knowledge in the academic community, as well as the public and nonprofit sectors. Our cross-sector approach allows us to redesign systems and facilitate the implementation of policy that affects the lives of the people our programs touch.
