The Master’s and Diploma programs in Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership are offered by the multi-disciplinary graduate School of Public Policy and Administration (SPPA). Established in 1953, SPPA is the oldest school of public policy in Canada and a leader in graduate education in this field.

SPPA also offers a Master Public Policy and Administration, a PhD in Public Policy, a Master of Sustainable Energy Policy (jointly with the Faculty of Engineering and Design), and Graduate Diplomas in Policy and Program Evaluation and Indigenous Policy and Administration.

SPPA is situated in a unique Faculty of Public Affairs (FPA) which includes other interdisciplinary professional schools as well as academic departments. We also collaborate closely with the Sprott School of Business. MPNL/DPNL students may, with permission and subject to availability, take elective courses in other FPA units or in the Sprott School of Business.
