Tammy Rohane-Henderson

"Belmont's Nonprofit Leadership program blends real world experience, current literature, a historical perspective and the work students are currently involved in to create exposure to a broad range of experiences, resulting in an expertise in the field of nonprofits. The professors present a supportive learning experience and are leaders in their respective fields. Communication skills and community learning are developed through group activities. Plus I found Belmont's Nonprofit Leadership program to be well-rounded and have even utilized the skills I developed in class in my current workplace. I look forward to the opportunities having a master's degree will bring."
