Preparing educators to make a difference in children's lives.

The goal of the Office of Professional Development and Outreach is to provide the educational community with high quality professional development opportunities in the form of credit workshops and off-campus courses.

We believe that successful professional development should help you to:

  • Increase knowledge of your subject area.
  • Improve professional practice through advanced pedagogy and classroom skills.
  • Develop personal skills that make you a more successful individual and professional.

The ultimate goal of professional growth is increased student achievement.

If we can help you to choose a workshop to improve your professional practice, meet the goals of your Individual Professional Development Plan, or getting started with your master's degree through one of our cohort programs, please contact us at
