The SFSU College of Extended Learning (CEL) will celebrate the 10th anniversary of its center in downtown San Francisco from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27, by presenting its first-ever Revitalizing Work Awards for Innovation in Training to four Bay Area businesses.
The celebration will take place at the SFSU Downtown Center, located at 425 Market St. (at Fremont Street) in San Francisco, and is co-sponsored by the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce and San Francisco Small Business Network.
The awards reflect CEL's 10-year commitment to offering thousands of Bay Area working professionals a wide array of individual courses and certificates for job advancement and training in the heart of San Francisco's Financial District.
"Each of the four companies that received our award," CEL Dean Gail Whitaker said, "deserves recognition for its creative and courageous efforts to enhance the workplace by focusing on its most important asset -- the employee."
At the awards ceremony, Morrison and Foerster partners Jordan Eth and Susan Mac Cormac will deliver the keynote address on "Corporate Ethics: Avoiding the Pitfalls of Corporate America."
In 1993, the Downtown Center opened its doors to serve the Bay Area public and business community as a premier venue for high-quality continuing education. From the birth of Multimedia Studies and the current boom in Paralegal Studies to English as a Second Language and a new program in Arts, Culture and Community Engagement, CEL serves more than 6,000 students every year. CEL offers 30 professional development and academic credit certificates, seven professional development series, and hundreds of classes every year on SFSU's main campus, at the Downtown Center, and SFSU Oakland Center.
