Professional Development and Enrichment Programs at the Friday Center

The Center’s Professional Development and Enrichment Programs unit offers noncredit seminars and workshops for professional education and a stimulating selection of enrichment courses taught by outstanding UNC-Chapel Hill faculty, staff, alumni, and community experts. Regularly offered programs include BRIDGES, Under the Atrium events, and the What’s the Big Idea? Lecture Series.
