Continuing and Professional Education
Help Support Continuing and Professional Education for Learners Everywhere

UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) is driven by the idea that everyone —regardless of location and socioeconomic status—deserves access to the education they need to advance their career and power our workforce.

As the lifelong learning arm of UC Davis, we leverage the university’s expertise and resources to serve learners across their lifetimes. We offer high quality, convenient and impactful online and in-person courses for individuals and employer groups looking to transform their careers, organizations and communities through the power of professional education.

UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education currently serves learners in the growing Sacramento region, all 50 states and more than 100 countries.

We understand the unprecedented need to provide working professionals with the right training in the right format at the right time throughout their lives. Your donation will help UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education continue to provide learning opportunities that transform the lives of the people, organizations and communities we serve.
