Keep your career moving forward, even in these unprecedented times

During the COVID-19 pandemic, most professionals have had to turn their home into their home office. Working remotely often means having to refocus efforts on what can reasonably be accomplished away from the resources and direct access to supervisors and coworkers that we’re used to. However, working from home doesn’t have to mean forgoing professional development. Developing clear communication styles within your team, learning to be an effective leader, or developing valuable skills you can bring to your team is just as important as it’s ever been.

The KU Edwards Campus offers several resources, including free webinars, professional development trainings, certificate programs and even degrees that can be completed entirely online. Not only does KUEC offer timely, relevant programming for those in Kansas City and beyond, it also offers award-winning support for guiding working professionals and transfer students along their educational journey. KU was recently recognized for the fourth consecutive year for excellence in community college transfer by the Phi Theta Kappa national honor society.

If you’re looking for ways to sharpen your professional skills, complete your bachelor’s degree or continue your education during this unprecedented time, consider these resources.
