The course has been approved by the Professional Education Standards Board (PESB) to meet the course requirement for ESA Certification.

Connect with Colleagues

Students will connect virtually in small facilitated groups called Hubs throughout the quarter to synthesize their learning, ask questions, share expertise, and network with colleagues. You will find more information about Hub Meetings under the “Program” tab.
