Excellence in Education For Adults


Welcome to the School of Leadership and Professional Advancement.  Our mission is to enhance people's lives and contribute to Society through the delivery of quality educational programs that extend the resources, traditions and values of the University.

From our academic programs available online, to our on-site programs in the PA Capital Region, and main campus in Pittsburgh,  we offer excellence in education for adults.

More than 4200 people have attended programs through our Nonprofit Leadership Institute and we offer a number of professional development opportunities.   Our American Bar Association approved Paralegal Institute has produced nearly 1500 paralegals.  Please visit the pages of our website for more information.
