Lien Centre has developed iLEAP, our Professional Education Course for Non-Profit Leaders, to provide insights and deepen the understanding of the non-profit sectors. Mooted with pairings of Faculty and practitioners from the social space, the course aims towards a better organisational management of non-profits, cross-sector dyanmics, and sustainable social models.
It provides unique learning experiences for executives and professionals interested to better the advancement of non-profits and volunteer welfare organisations. It also hopes to create a better understanding of issues on the ground balancing them with professional academic requirements.
The Lien Centre encourages SMU students to carry out projects and be more socially engaged and responsible in their attitudes towards society in general. We hope to see how students from the six schools within SMU can match appropriate needs in social organisations. We will also engage student groups and organisations interested to partner with the Lien Centre to do joint projects that are socially responsible and with long-term visions.
