Today, the field of professional, continuing, online education is characterized by engagement in very complex, highly specialized areas of practice.  UPCEA’s seven Networks are designed to serve professionals practicing in the key areas that define this vibrant and growing sector of higher education. 

Each Network is designed to be a “professional home” for members who work in that area. Individuals can choose to join one or more Networks, according to their needs and interests, and there is no cost to join a Network beyond the membership fee that each institution pays.

UPCEA Networks include:

The mission of the Networks is to:

  • Identify and build targeted professional development opportunities for members
  • Frame a research, information, and benchmarking agenda that will facilitate data-informed decision making
  • Identify new and emerging trends
  • Nurture a professional networking community, both online and in-person at association events
  • Recognize excellence through awards and identification of best practices
