Lindsay Ackley, '06, Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.), Certified Nonprofit Professional

The Wright State University Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (NLA) program prepared me for a successful and rewarding career. Through participation in the NLA student organization, coursework, and internships, I gained the right blend of knowledge and hands-on experience to make a positive impact from the beginning of my career. NLA also opened up a world of important lifelong connections. I continue to interact and maintain meaningful relationships with many of these community partners, students, alumni, and faculty.
