CEW icon Center on Education and Work (CEW) provides leadership in identifying and responding to issues affecting the connections among education, work, community, and the family. We seek to accomplish this through collaborative, interdisciplinary research and development programs. Further, the Center is committed to translating research and development findings into practical solutions and effective policies through focused dissemination, professional development, and technical assistance.
EOP icon Education Outreach and Partnerships (EOP) provides a link between campus and community by transferring and applying knowledge that draws on the resources of the School and the University. EOP develops and manages the School's non-credit activities, most of which offer some form of continuing education credit; manages the School's independent study program (correspondence courses); and offers youth programs for students in grades K-8. Some for-credit opportunities are available.
