Teacher Professional Development

For more than two decades, the Glasscock School of Continuing Studies has provided high-quality, rigorous professional development opportunities for teachers, both locally and globally.

We offer teacher professional development for teachers of toddlers all the way through principal certification and everything in between. We seek to be the gateway for educators to gain access to the world-class research and practices that can only be found at Rice University. From one-day events to week-long institutes and from face-to-face to online, we are here to support and equip those serving students.
