Professional Development

In addition to the traditional academic offerings of a university, Corporate and Professional Development is involved in the coordination conferences, seminars and professional programs for business and industry. These programs are developed for and appeal to individuals from many fields; including dental hygienists and assistants, nurses, opticians, artists, engineers, and educators.
