The newly launched Center for Professional Development (CPD) is a collaboration between the Graduate School of Professional Psychology (GSSP), Morgridge College of Education (MCE), Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW), and University College (UCOLL). By working across boundaries with these established colleges, the CPD is able to bring its students a modern curriculum that is interdisciplinary, salient, community focused, and built to suit them.
