The Office of Professional Studies and Continuing Education (PSCE) extends the educational offerings and faculty expertise of Rhode Island College both on and off campus to provide a wide variety of in-demand programming. PSCE units and programs include Continuing Education, Adult Education and Workforce Development, RI STEAM Center, ESL Intensive and ExCEL Programs, Recovery-Friendly Workplace of Rhode Island initiative and various cultural and community programs.

We are most excited about the opening of our Workforce Development Hub, located in Central Falls, in 2020 and the programs we are launching there that offer industry-recognized credentials, stackable certificates, and access to postsecondary degree attainment. The Hub works with members of the community and partners in education, government, healthcare and industry to build skills that will strengthen Rhode Island’s workforce by developing and offering programming that meets the ever-changing needs of adults and employers in Rhode Island.
