Ascend - Elevating Nonprofits Conference, Fort Collins, CO.  Online registration for this event is now closed ut you can register on site on Wednesday morning.

Ascend was established in 2013 under the name Enterprise Student Partnership Program.
Its creation was sparked by the Colorado State University System Venture Capital Fund sponsored by the CSU Board of Governors to support innovation and promote collaboration in higher education. Their  initial proposal was to enroll companies as “students” so they could benefit from the vast opportunities at Colorado State University. 

The Enterprise Student Partnership Program would launch a new product into the marketplace and create an entirely new student population, and associated revenue stream, for the CSU System. Through this Program, they would enroll entire entities – private corporations, nonprofit organizations, government units, etc. – as students of the Program. By enrolling as a “students” in the Program, the entity purchases a comprehensive suite of educational services and opportunities to engage in the life of the universities, as though it were an individual student.

By enrolling as a “students” in the Program, the entity purchases a comprehensive suite of educational services and opportunities to engage in the life of the universities, as though it were an individual student. The team worked with and listened to organizations large and small, across Colorado to create a program tailored to the needs of the business and non-profit communities. They also  developed partnerships within the Colorado State University Fort Collins campus to bring exceptional offerings to the forefront of the program. The culmination was the creation of a holistic experience designed to elevate the employee experience through the bundling of the best of Colorado State University.

The Institute for Nonprofit Practice was founded in Boston in 2007 by Barry Dym, Ph.D. During his career as a nonprofit founder, consultant, and coach, he observed and sought to address several critical issues threatening the effectiveness of the nonprofit sector:

  • Under-investment in leadership development
  • A succession crisis triggered by the retirement of the baby boomers
  • The need for more diverse leadership that reflects communities served
  • The Core Certificate Program was created to equip nonprofit executives and middle managers with the skills needed to strengthen their organizations. In 2012, we launched Community Fellows Program for emerging leaders of color to support the growth of a robust and diverse leadership pipeline.

What began as a small class of 14 students in Boston has steadily grown in response to demand. In 2009, the Institute opened a second program site in Lowell, Massachusetts and in 2015, a third site in Providence, Rhode Island. To date, nearly 1,000 leaders have graduated from our programs.

The Institute for Nonprofit Practice is affiliated with Tufts University's Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life.
