THE RIGHT SKILLS, BETTER LIVES, AND OUR COMMUNITY
Even as the growth of America’s economy continues its record-long expansion, the quality of those jobs is what matters most to individuals and businesses. That is why Kennesaw State University’s College of Professional Education (CPE) is committed to advancing the skills of people right here in our community.
Our team is made up of instructors and staff who are dedicated to serving you, our neighbors. We thrive on helping you advance your career because we see your success as our success.
That’s why our professional certificates and courses propel your skills to meet today’s job standards and tomorrow’s job needs. We don’t do degrees because we know that time and costs hinder many seeking to better their lives. Instead, our courses focus on transferable skills and are offered at times that work for you.
Your progression is why we continue to identify the best ways to offer quality courses in the most convenient ways possible. We consult with companies and professionals to discover what they need, so we can teach you the skills you need to take the next step in your career path.
Whether this is your first or last course with us, we are dedicated to providing the best educational experience because a job is more than just a job. It is a lifeline – and one we hope you strengthen here at CPE.

Join OLLI’s Travel Group for getaways to the destinations of your dreams. This past May, OLLI took a trip to the historic lands of Ireland. It was an amazing trip for everyone who traveled.
We visited the Cliffs of Moher, Kylemore Abbey, and Giant’s Causeway, which was my personal favorite stop of the tour. We had the pleasure to see the columns made from 40,000 year old, cooled lava. The columns were massive, stretching from the sea to the foot of the cliffs.
Other highlights of the trip were Belfast, the Titanic Experience, and everyone’s favorite…the Hillsborough Castle where the Royal Family of Northern Ireland live. Our travelers enjoyed the guided tour of the Castle as they walked through elegant interiors and viewed luxurious, regal rooms.
We also visited other infamous castles in Dublin and Kilkenny. The group spent its leisure time traversing the Ring of Kerry and destinations like, the Kissing Stone at Blarney Castle and the House of Waterford Crystal. Every day was magical as we walked the medieval, cobblestone streets packed with Old World charm and visited the historic ports of the country-side alongside their fishing towns.
Near the end of the trip, we took a private boat to Garinish Island in Bantry Bay, where the beauty of Ireland can be seen for miles. Many OLLI students described their experience as a fulfillment of something on their bucket list. For others, the gorgeous, green, rolling hills and the picturesque thatched cottages were something they will never forget.

As you choose your classes and decide on trips, let us know if you have your own suggestions. If you have a passion for a skill or hobby you believe should be available at OLLI, send me an email at email@example.com with your thoughts. We love to incorporate new courses for our OLLI students and make sure each class will leave learners with an unforgettable experience. Let me know how I can help.
I wish you all the luck of the Irish in your future success with OLLI.
