SPCE collaborates with individuals, businesses, and communities through transformative educational programs and economic engagement.



At JMU, diversity is more than meets your eye — it is the opening of windows in your mind and in your life. Diversity is about learning about and from others. Their experiences, their culture, their ideas — how we bring different perspectives and voices to the conversation that helps us understand who we are and who we wish to be.

The School of Professional & Continuing Education embraces the tenets and principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, access, and inclusion through its relationships, key stakeholders, and partners across the Shenandoah Valley. We take great pride in creating and implementing programming that provides opportunities for individuals of all ages and backgrounds to interact with and learn from one another.
