Research and Consulting
The UPCEA Center for Research and Marketing Strategy offers the gold standard of research and benchmarking information in the professional, continuing, and online education field. Under the experienced leadership of Jim Fong, the Center conducts several free studies per year on timely issues for the benefit of the UPCEA membership at large, in addition to numerous custom studies for individual members that are considerably more affordable than the private sector.

Founding Director Ray Schroeder is a leading expert in online education whose insights are transforming the way institutions leverage online education as a critical strategic asset.
UPCEA members have access to a wealth of resources focused on supporting both continuing education and quality online and blended programs. Whether through timely online publications addressing cutting-edge trends and topics, frequent webinars on actionable subjects, or extensive on-demand access to conference session content via the Online Pass, UPCEA has the resources you need.
