Our mission as an educational outreach organization is to extend instructional expertise in a variety of traditional and non-traditional ways, including distance-based education. The company’s general mission is to provide meaningful lifelong learning experiences to individuals and organizations whenever the need for such opportunities has been established. In particular, CEA focuses on providing meaningful non-credit/personal enrichment classes and conference coordination services, as well as professional development courses for K-12 educators.
Our vision is to be a premier educational outreach organization in the nation.
These “excellence-grounded” principles guide our work and define our mission-
Integrity, accountability, and trust. We commit to openness and honesty, fairness, responsibility, and the highest professional standards. We believe that the expertise and judgment of education professionals are critical to customer and organizational success. We maintain the highest professional standards, and we expect the status, recognition, and respect due all professionals.
Customer focused. We continually strive to meet the needs of our customers and constituents through dependable, reliable, and quality service.
Equal opportunity and access. We believe education is the gateway to opportunity. All people have the human and civil right to a quality education that develops their potential, independence, and character.
Partnerships and relationships. We believe our partnerships and relationships with customers, instructional experts, businesses and communities, and other stakeholders are essential to quality education and customer and organizational success.
Creativity and innovation. We believe in the spirit of exploration and discovery, and realize the value of individual and collective expression.
Lifelong- learning. We realize the human and societal benefits of lifelong learning and continually renew our programmatic endeavors and services to foster ongoing educational engagement.
We believe everyperson, regardless of locale or potential impediment to access deserves a quality education. In pursuing our mission, we will focus our energy and resources on (1) improving the quality of teaching, learning, and access thereto, thereby increasing customer retention and achievement and (2) improving customer satisfaction for those outside of the traditional educational environment by continually striving for excellence in what we do.
