Center for Continuing Education

Professional Development for Education and Mental Health Professionals to Advance Equity and Justice

The mission of the Center for Continuing Education (CCE) is to support the quality and impact of school and mental health professionals by offering professional development that is research-based, collaboratively developed, and justice oriented.

Launched in Fall 2014, the Center for Continuing Education (CCE) of the University of San Francisco School of Education offers effective and impactful professional development for teachers, administrators, and mental health professionals. Workshops, courses, and specializations are developed and offered in partnership with public school districts, Catholic schools, and mental health organizations. We welcome students who seek to grow and flourish in their professions and to be change agents as they serve and act in solidarity with the children, families, and communities most in need.

The CCE brings to both new and veteran professionals the expertise and commitments of the USF School of Education, a school whose efforts have been centered on diversity, equity, and social justice for the last forty years. USF is San Francisco’s first university and its Jesuit Catholic mission helps ignite students’ passion for social justice and desire to “Change the World From Here.”
