Professional Development for PreK–12 Teachers, Community Educators, and School or District Leaders

The Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) provides educators with professional development that addresses critical content areas in teaching and learning.

Building upon our reputation for preparing experts in teacher education, our offerings will apply culturally responsive and innovative approaches to help educators ensure that learners—especially English language learners and children with special needs—reach their full potential. Some offerings can be taken for graduate credit or Professional Development Points (PDPs).
