Professional Development 2020-2021

NACEP, the Advanced Credit Program's accrediting body, requires all dual credit adjuncts to attend one professional development workshop every academic year. For this reason, the ACP offers a wide variety of PD workshops each year. A list of this year's professional development workshops will become available as we schedule them.  

Adjuncts who participate in these workshops receive one student scholarship (limit two per academic year). The ACP awarded $76,500 in student scholarships last year. If you have questions, please email Brienna Manore at blmt7g@umsl.edu.
