Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
Community engagement refers to the process by which institutions, organizations, and businesses that are beneficial to the community and individuals build sustainable relationships for the purpose of applying a collective vision for the community's wellness. Consistent with the university's strategic plan, The Division of Academic Outreach and Engagement, specifically the Center for Continuing and Professional Studies (CCPS) remains involved in a number of outreach initiatives. Morgan State University's Center for Continuing and Professional Studies (CCPS) offers Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Professional Development Hours (PDHs). The CEU and PDH are uniform units of measurement to record participation in non-credit, academic, professional development, and training programs.
