Affiliated Academic Programs
VTIPG works with the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA) and its academic programs to develop and propose nonprofit and nongovernmental organization-related curricula at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The nonprofit/nongovernmental offerings share a number of characteristics, such as interdisciplinary faculty, a comparative focus, and integration of theory, practice and public policy implications.
The School of Public and International Affairs offers twelve graduate level certificates, many of which have classes that are taught by IPG-affiliated faculty. This includes a certificate in Nonprofit & NGO management. This, and other certificate programs, can be completed wholly online.
IPG affiliated students are often enrolled in the Center for Public Administration and Policy (CPAP), Government & International Affairs (GIA), and Urban Affairs and Planning (UAP) programs. We also work across Virginia Tech Colleges and programs supporting students in interdisciplinary study and research.
