The National Center for Community of Caring at the University of Utah is now


Dear Colleagues and Friends of Community of Caring,

You have reached the new website, currently under construction, for the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Professional Development Center for Community of Caring.  We are very pleased to let you know that the University of Utah is continuing its successful partnership with the Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. Foundation through the EKS Center.  For more than 30 years, the Community of Caring core values of caring, trust, respect, responsibility, and family have played an integral role in hundreds of schools across the U.S. and Canada. The EKS Professional Development Center at the University of Utah expands on CofC’s national legacy by providing direct training to schools seeking effective strategies to build a foundation for a positive school-wide climate through the integration of evidenced-based practices to improve academic performance and pro-social student behavior. 
Although this website is under construction with plans to go live in the next few weeks, the Community of Caring Professional Development Program for schools is available now.  For more information on how to receive this training and bring Community of Caring to your school or agency, please contact: 

Penny Keith, Professional Development Coordinator

With kindest regards,
