The Office of Career and Technical Education (CTE) extends an invitation to teachers, supervisors, school administrators and school counselors interested in the successful transition of students to postsecondary education and careers to participate in a professional development institute on current and important topics in career and technical education in New Jersey and nationwide.

Attendees may select from AM sessions (8:45 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.), PM sessions (12:45 p.m. – 3:15 p.m.) or full-day sessions (8:45 a.m. – 3:15 pm.) being offered at the institute.  Boxed lunches will be provided at no cost to attendees for lunchtime sessions from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.  Lunch may also be purchased in the Café in the Brower Student Center.  There is no registration fee to attend this event and complimentary parking will be available in designated campus areas.
