What is APCE?
What is Adult, Professional, and Community Education?
Adult educators are found in community organizations such as libraries, museums, and parks; government agencies; schools and higher education; foundations and NGOs; the business sector; social services; the military; religious organizations; social and community action groups; vocational education; media and technology; professional associations; or any setting where adults are learning or need to learn. The traditional knowledge bases of this interdisciplinary field include adult learning and teaching, adult development, program planning and evaluation, community and organizational development, organizational and community learning, and a rich literature on adult learning/education and social justice.
Students learn to team with faculty and field professionals beyond classroom experiences as demonstrated in our most recent student contributions.
