Mission of the Center for Professional Studies

Service. Leadership. Purpose.

The D'Youville College Center for Professional Studies is committed to providing learning opportunities that enhance and enrich each person's chosen professional path. We believe that work should be infused with a sense of service that fosters an impulse toward compassionate and thoughtful leadership - driven by meaning and purpose. Learning opportunities offered through the Center will focus on service, leadership, and purpose as a means of enlivening each person's work.


The goal of the D'Youville College Center for Professional Studies is to provide learning opportunities to D'Youville College faculty, staff, and alumni as well as members of the community interested in enhancing and enriching their professional path with a deliberate emphasis on service, leadership, and purpose.

The work of the Center focuses on four areas:

Assessment Plan

For each learning opportunity offered through the Center, an evaluation tool will be provided to participants. The evaluation tool will focus on three areas:


  • How well did the learning opportunity match the mission driven category of service, leadership, or purpose?


  • Was the content engaging and thoughtfully presented?
  • Did the presenter engage participants around the content in a manner that helped participants consider how the content would pertain to their own professional path?

Action Steps

  • How does the participant plan to use the course content to enhance, enrich, and enliven their professional path?
