Contracts and Discounts

Contract Services

Professional development courses and/or consultation can be offered to organizations on contract. Academic outreach conducts an initial consultation to help identify appropriate educational/consultation services then submits a proposal for services. The primary benefits of contract courses include:

  • Customization Established courses can be tailored or new courses can be developed to address the unique needs of  the organization.
  • Consistency The same educational experience among employees lends to greater productivity in the work place.
  • Convenience Programs can be conducted at a time and locations convenient to the organization, from and organization's office, to local conference facilities, to the Washburn campus.
  • Cost Courses are much more economical when a group of employees need the same professional development program.

 Course Discounts

Most course fees are discounted when registering multiple individuals for the same event at the same registration time. The discount varies depending on the course and the number of people. Discounts to public courses may be equivalent to costs associated with a contract course. For more information about discounts for a particular course, please call (785) 670-1399 or e-mail
