Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


We offer 10 non-credit professional development certificates. Our workshops and courses provide experiential, interactive learning opportunities through online, in-person and remote training options. All of our courses are facilitated by highly qualified, knowledgeable instructors with considerable experience in their area of expertise.
