University Honors Nonprofit Leader with Alumni Visit, Surprise Party

Lewis Levine is recognized at Belmont University for his service in the nonprofit community.

The University’s Department of Education hosted a surprise party for retiring Center for Nonprofit Management (CNM) CEO Lewis Levine on Saturday, November 19. Held during a Master’s of Education in Nonprofit Leadership course, the event surprised Levine after he spent the afternoon speaking to current students in the program.

Created in 2007, Levine partnered with Belmont to create the Master’s of Education in Nonprofit Leadership, a 30-credit hour program designed to build skills and knowledge for practical application in the nonprofit workplace. Students participating in the program develop leadership potential and explore leadership styles and models.

During Saturday’s celebration, three program alumni spoke on their experiences since graduating, their thesis projects and their greatest program takeaways. Faculty members including Assistant Professor and Director of the Program Dr. Alan Coverstone, Professor of Education and previous program director Dr. Joy Kimmons and Department Chair and Professor of Education Dr. Mark Hogan were also in attendance.
