Nonprofit Leadership

Connecticut Hispanic Leadership Institute

An Institute to develop Latino nonprofit managers

In partnership with the Hispanic Federation the UConn Nonprofit Leadership Program (NLP) designed a new program called the Connecticut Hispanic Leadership Institute (HLI).

The coursework within HLI is intended to meet the educational needs of Latino nonprofits operating in Connecticut, and is taught by UConn Department of Public Policy faculty, and seasoned practitioners from the field.

Focusing on management skills

The HLI aims to help Latino nonprofit managers develop and improve their management skills, enhance the operations of their organization, and work more effectively within the broader community.

Specifically, through the Institute, the Hispanic Federation seeks to develop a cadre of nonprofit leaders who will strengthen institutions that advance the quality of life of the Connecticut Latino community.
