Community Development

The award-winning Community Development Institute Central (CDI) has trained thousands of professionals for over two decades. The institute builds the capacity of individuals and communities to positively impact economic and social development. This is achieved by expanding an individual’s ability to identify community assets, set goals, encourage collaboration and partnerships with stakeholders, and brings together groups of people to respond to a broad range of economic and quality-of-life issues.


Professional Development

UCA and the Division of Outreach and Community Engagement believe that professional development plays an essential role in your personal success. Outreach and Community Engagement serves to bridge the gap between your educational development and your professional success. Equitable access to such professional development opportunities is imperative. Moreover, professional development works best when it is part of a system wide effort to improve and promote such opportunities within each community.
