About Us
Professional Education

Welcome to Professional Education at the University of Utah!

Our mission is to inspire professional excellence in individuals and to help improve organizational capacity across the great state of Utah. Our passion is to provide the community with a gathering place to network, discuss, and learn new skills and techniques.

We engage with the professional community in a variety of ways. We offer individual classes, certificate programs, academies and institutes targeted to specific disciplines, and we collaborate with community partners to deliver special workshops and programs. And, we do this with the quality you would expect from the University of Utah, but at a fraction of the cost of a degree program.

We encourage you to continue your love of learning. Please call us to discuss how we can help you and your organization move forward.
