Continuing Education & Professional Development

We believe in access to education and learning for all those who seek to enhance their skills and knowledge or develop personally or professionally. As such, we are developing a series of non-credit courses, workshops, seminars, customized training and certificate programs that will be offered part-time in flexible and innovative ways, meeting you where you are.

Pursue your interests, develop skills and embrace understanding, all while maintaining your usual routine, whether that be at work or leisure.
