To achieve our vision of developing industry professionals and community leaders who will make a difference in their communities through thoughtful innovation and collaboration, Continuing Education accepts proposals for new programming from academic departments, institutional partners, and the community.
There is a lot of flexibility in the kinds of programming we can offer – academic, non-credit, CEU, online, face-to-face – but we need skilled subject matter experts to develop and lead it. On this page, you’ll find all the information you need to turn your ideas into quality programming at PLU. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Organizations and PLU departments who already have developed their own programming and are seeking OSPI clock hours or other CE credits can submit a CE Credit Request Form instead.

- PLU faculty
- PLU staffꜞ
