The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance chapter at Missouri Valley College was awarded Four Star Campus Program Status for 2017 by the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance.  

Missouri Valley College and Arizona State University were the only two colleges to receive this prestigious recognition. This recognition is given to chapters that demonstrate campus excellence through program growth, certification of nonprofit professionals and evidence of campus excellence through program reviews. The Missouri Valley College Nonprofit Management Program was also the runner up to Arizona State University for the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Campus Excellence Award.

The Campus Excellence Award is given annually to the campus that is determined to be most outstanding in the following areas:

• Evidence of student recruitment strategies such as recruitment presentations, interest meetings, retreats, networking events, career fairs and student organization fairs
• Evidence of hands-on learning activities focused on nonprofit career skills and knowledge including innovative internships, service-learning projects and other events for career development and service opportunities
• Evidence of strong group interaction among students including Alliance student association activities, retreats and other networking events
• Evidence of strong relationships between the campus Alliance program and the local nonprofit community, emphasizing partnerships with local affiliates of the Alliance’s Nonprofit Workforce Partners

Campus evaluation is done through the submission of a student produced three minute campus/program video, a ten minute student presentation, letters of recommendation from community partners and letters of support from campus leadership. The MVC Nonprofit Program was deemed outstanding in every area. Recent previous award recipients include Brigham Young University, the University of Northern Iowa and the University of Central Florida.
