Why did you choose UIS?
“UIS really focused on making a post-graduate degree attainable and convenient for the working individual. All of my courses were in the evenings or online which made it possible to balance with a full-time work schedule.”

How did UIS change or prepare you
“My studies at UIS prepared me for the vast range of duties and situations you encounter in not-for-profit association management. Whether I am managing volunteers or writing an industry newsletter, I lean heavily on the information I learned at UIS.”
