Center for Continuing Education (CCE) instructors help to fulfill ​the Center's mission to provide innovative and in-demand educational programs and experiences to the Mobile, Gulf Coast​​ and international communities.

▼   CCE's commitment to instructors

The CCE contracts with qualified instructors to provide quality educational programs which meet the mission of the University and Center.  The CCE invites potential instructors to submit ideas for new courses, however, the decision to offer a course is completely at the discretion of the CCE.  We are dedicated to helping all CCE classes succeed by providing the following services to our instructors:

  • Promote classes through the website, social media, speaking engagements and other marketing mediums
  • Register students, collect payments and provide registration confirmation
  • Provide AV equipment and prepare classroom as requested
  • Distribute materials list to students, if needed
  • Provide photocopy service, if needed
  • Process paperwork for instructor’s compensation
  • Process end-of-course evaluations

If you have any questions concerning your course or paperwork processes, please contact the Center for Continuing Education at (251) 460-7200 or email usactrforconted@southalabama.edu

▼   Instructor commitment to CCE programs

CCE instructors have extensive knowledge in their background or program area, great people skills and a sincere passion for teaching others. Here are a few reminders of the commitment our instructors are making when signing on to teach a class: 

  • Instructors will provide a course syllabus for each class they intend to teach.
  • Instructors will communicate to the CCE any changes to the published class schedule as soon as conflicts arise. 
  • Instructors understand that if they are unable to teach on a topic, the CCE reserves the right to recruit another instructor to submit a proposal to teach on that topic. The CCE respects individual instructor's intellectual property; as a result all potential instructors are asked to submit their independent work product to us for review. 
  • Instructors understand the CCE reserves the right to cancel any course due to insufficient enrollment or other conflicts that may occur.
