EVP is a comprehensive interdisciplinary certificate program distinct from many traditional educational programs. Eight interactive learning modules will be held every other month for two days each (Thursday and Friday). In the time between each module, participants are expected to complete assigned work while applying the information in their workplace. Modules are organized sequentially to enhance the integration of the subject matter.
The EVP instructors are nationally recognized experts in the field, from both academia and industry. Handouts, readings, and practical assignments for both individuals and groups will be assigned by the instructors. Between modules there will be regular communication between the program participants, EVP instructors, and program staff.
