What is NPL?

Nonprofits are the driving force behind change in our communities. They include: healthcare, environmental, social service, consumer, and community organizing groups throughout the United States as well as nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) doing important work in developing countries throughout the world. Examples include Habitat for Humanity, American Red Cross, YMCA, Girls Scouts, Children's Defense Fund, Global Exchange, and many more!

Winner of the 2005 Excellence in Curriculum Programming Award as the TOP curriculum innovation in the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system.

The Minnesota State curriculum award goes to programs that demonstrate a high rate of employment, transfer or enrollment in graduate school after graduation; make effective use of technology; generate extramural support or funding; involve collaboration with other college or university departments, employers or community members; and reach out to diverse subgroups.

"These are Minnesota's top awards for higher education programming, and our programs have proven to be the best of the best," said MSU President Richard Davenport. "These awards indicate significant progress toward our key strategic priorities of diversity, academic excellence, technology and distance learning. I'm delighted about that, and very proud of our faculty and staff levels of excellence."
