The mission of the Government and Nonprofit Assistance Center (GNAC) is to be known as the center in Virginia that provides quality professional financial education and technical assistance to governmental and not-for-profit organizations. The GNAC seeks to involve RU faculty in developing programs for this important sector.
The university is committed to public service and seeks to share resources, skills and facilities. The GNAC has developed alliances, partnerships and other arrangements with selected professional organizations and associations, such as the Government Finance Officers Association, Treasurers Association of Virginia, Virginia Government Finance Officers' Association and other organizations. The purpose of these relationships is to identify educational and training needs and to provide programs and delivery systems to meet those needs. This approach allows the GNAC to complement the programs of existing professional organizations.
