Office of Community & Academic Enrichment

The Office of Community & Academic Enrichment is home to several programs which help to enrich the academic experiences of community members through short-term, affordable education.

Community Professional Development

Through Community Professional Development, participants will have opportunities to customize professional portfolios by earning SUU Institutional Certificates. Classes are designed to increase marketability and teach new career-enhancing skills.

Community Education

Community Education is for the purpose of creating community partnerships and generating fun, cultural, educational opportunities and experiences for those who love to learn. Subjects including culinary arts, hiking southern Utah, photography, Adobe programs, blogging and many others will be taught by local professionals for increasing participant knowledge and developing new skills.

Community on the Go

Safe and affordable travel for the community to international and domestic destinations. All trips are led by SUU faculty experts who share their expertise while touring with travelers in a group environment. Activities are flexible and designed using community feedback.

Summer University

This program will highlight Cedar City as a summer destination for travelers from other communities. Participants will be able to tour the area’s national parks, participate in SUU expert-led excursions, immerse themselves in Shakespeare Festival activities and on-campus educational experiences, and stay in student housing for affordable rates.

Concurrent Enrollment

The Concurrent Enrollment Program offers high school students the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school.

Road Creek Inn

Community members can book an educational vacation to Road Creek Inn, SUU’s Capitol Reef field station in Loa, Utah. Located near Capitol Reef National Park, Fishlake National Forest, Canyonlands National Park and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, the historic hotel serves as a retreat option for any of the four programs in the Office of Community and Academic Enrichment at SUU.
