Dominican University’s School of Social Work Center for Professional Excellence (CPE) provides customized training to meet the needs and challenges of social service, governmental and nongovernmental organizations. For example, instructors can provide training in the areas of supervision, child welfare, gerontology, school social work, human trafficking prevention and community development. 

Needs Assessment

Each customized program is designed to meet the specific need of the organization. A CPE representative will meet with a member(s) of the organization to determine immediate and long-term training goals. 


CPE trainers are seasoned professionals with years of experience in the field of social services. 

Onsite Training

CPE instructors will conduct training sessions at an organization or at Dominican University’s Priory, Main or Grayslake campus. Our goal is to make your training experience comfortable and convenient as possible.
