Professional Development

We are currently planning our Summer 2015 Professional Development workshops. Please click here to tell us which workshop(s) you’d like us to offer.


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. Professional Development workshops and institutes, through Outreach & Engagement, are primarily designed for educators from K-12 to post secondary education.  However, some of the workshops are suitable for business professionals, parents, and other interested individuals.  Many of the workshops and institutes are available for graduate and/or professional development (inservice) credit. The professional development workshops offered for graduate credit are upper level graduate courses, and most of the professional development credit is approved by the Arkansas Department of Education. In addition, the Professional Development Department at UCA Outreach and Community Engagement also provides conference and event planning to faculty, staff, and other educational organizations who offer workshops for professional development or graduate credit. Let us help you realize your full potential so that it may have a lasting and positive effect on your overall success!
