This program is offered on the Indianapolis campus. The Graduate Certificate Program in Community Building and Urban Education is an interdisciplinary offering provided by faculty representing various schools within IUPUI. It is an inquiry-based, 18 credit hour professional development opportunity designed for the following groups: teachers, counselors, school/program/business administrators, policy makers, youth development and parks/recreational professionals, and professionals in urban planning, criminal justice, community development fields, and health and human service agencies.
The program is a highly interactive and reflective experience where participants are mentored by practitioners from multiple professions. Mentor and peer interactions have been designed to nurture collaborations and enhance understandings about community and urban school issues. The certificate meets the specific needs of those intending to pursue positions beyond the entry level that require additional certification and/or experience and who are interested in mobilizing a community to meet the diverse needs of its youth.
