Continuing Education Units and Professional Development Hours
About the CEU/PDH Program
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or Professional Development Hours (PDHs) are offered at the Women of Color STEM Conference. The conference’s CEU/PDH program is offered through the Center for Continuing and Professional Studies at Morgan State University (MSU).
The Center for Continuing and Professional Studies at MSU, a historically black institution, has the unique designation as Maryland’s Public Urban University. It currently has the Carnegie Classification of Doctoral, Professional Dominant Institution, reflecting a commitment to academic excellence. The mission of the Center for Continuing and Professional Studies is to serve the lifelong educational needs of traditional and non-traditional students pursuing undergraduate, graduate, professional, and personal growth.
MSU is an accredited academic institution both offering CEUs and PDHs and sponsoring activities for CEUs/PDHs for university departments and organizations in the State of Maryland and across the nation. The Center for Continuing and Professional Studies is the authorized unit at the institution responsible for awarding, administering, and reviewing CEU/PDH procedures to ensure compliance with established criteria.
Education program participants at the Women of Color STEM Conference earn one CEU for every 10 hours spent in a CEU-eligible event. Alternatively, participants may earn 10 PDHs through participation in a minimum of 10 PDH-eligible events.

Certificate of Participation
We offer certificates based on course hours completed for those who simply want to keep a record of their continued learning and professional development. Of course, you may also want to share them with your boss to her or him abreast of your efforts to grow in your career.
Certificates will be made available for download in the Attendee Service Center after the conference. Your attendance is tracked when you scan in and out of the seminars and workshops.
Be sure to scan your name badge so that your certificate record reflects your attendance.
