We’re pleased to announce the launch of a new office here at UAH, the Office of Professional and Continuing Education (OPCE). This office is dedicated to providing high-quality and responsive training and education to support federal agencies, government contractors, business enterprises, and individuals looking to advance their professional careers. It will also provide professional development opportunities to our campus groups internally, which is why I am sharing this with you today.

OPCE is a fantastic resource for our UAH teams and individuals, and the office has an exclusive discount for UAH faculty and staff. Investing in our faculty and staff to advance their technical and professional knowledge, skills, and abilities is a priority, and I encourage you to consider exploring the opportunities that the OPCE offers for you and your internal teams, such as the upcoming Leadership Accelerator Academy.

The office has access to a long list of respected researchers, innovators, and leaders at the forefront of their fields who teach these professional courses and programs. Born out of the former College of Professional Studies, OPCE offers a variety of content in topics such as leadership, management, IT, engineering, data analytics, cybersecurity, and many more. Many courses already exist, but customized programs may also be developed to fit your team's unique needs. Flexible delivery methods are available, including live virtual, online on-demand, at your office, or at an OPCE facility.

Lastly, if your group would like to host any conferences or symposia, OPCE has the capabilities to support you in planning and executing all aspects of the program. 

This is an exciting development for UAH, and I once again encourage you to explore the professional development and training opportunities available to your teams. For more information, please visit opce.uah.edu or contact Fathia Hardy (fathia.hardy@uah.edu, 256-824-2808).

Go Chargers!

Dr. David Puleo
Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs
