The School of Continuing & Professional Studies (CAPS) is at the forefront of Washington University’s “In St. Louis, For St. Louis” initiative creating various ways for the community to get involved. Whether you are an individual, a business or a non-profit organization, there are opportunities to engage in mutually beneficial relationships that support educational excellence, social equity and regional development.


Support CAPS by making a donation. Your monetary contributions help to ensure the region’s underserved populations have access to high-quality educational opportunities and allow for program expansion. Donations support scholarships, program development, and resources for our diverse student population.


Help your employees upskill and advance within your organization by partnering with CAPS. Create a non-credit certificate program to help your employees rapidly gain the skills they need to advance to higher positions, improving their lives and building your  workforce with customized curriculum.


Develop your workforce with talented graduates from CAPS. Dedicated career specialists work closely with businesses to understand their specific needs and create feeder programs that align with your hiring goals.
