Continuing Professional Education

Credit and non-credit courses offered through Continuing Professional Education and Workforce Development help professionals advance, change, or refocus their careers, and support organizations with custom education solutions.

The Office of Continuing Professional Education and Workforce Development offers a variety of options for professional development, including four-week online courses for educators that take place annually in Fall, Spring I, Spring II, and Summer sessions.

In addition, we partner with education collaboratives, institutions, and organizations to offer graduate credit and/or professional development points (PDPs) to educators for course work or conference attendance. If you are an institution/organization interested in partnering with us to offer graduate credit or PDPs, click Partnership in Educational Professionalism.

Our portfolio of online and classroom based professional certificate programs in management, marketing, business, and leadership are impactful, highly applied, and grounded in industry standards. Programs are designed to help professionals gain specific and targeted skill sets that enable them to advance professionally while continuing to work.
