Professional Development and Continuing Education

If you are a teacher looking for ways to become a more effective educator, are thinking about earning an advanced degree or just want additional certification, Stritch’s innovative programs will enhance your expertise and your career.

Southeastern Wisconsin Educator Project

We provide opportunity and access for beginning teachers, mentors, and districts to maximize teacher effectiveness to ensure student learning through the Southeastern Wisconsin Educator Project (SWEP).  Stritch, along with districts in southeastern Wisconsin, have joined together as a consortium to meet districts' mentoring and new teacher induction needs. The consortium provides its members with ongoing training and support to meet PI 34 requirements and collaboration to share ideas, resources, and expenses. 

Principals' Center

The Principals’ Center is founded on the belief that school leaders who are purposeful, passionate, and reflective about their work, and who are engaged in sustained exchange of ideas with colleagues, have greater potential to transform schools to ensure student achievement. Participation in the programs/services organized and sponsored by the Principals’ Center is open to all leaders of public, parochial, and private K-12 schools/districts. Many Principals' Center programs carry the option for participants to earn graduate credits from the University.
