University-Community Linkage Short Courses: Empowering Communities through Skill-Oriented Education

The Community University Linkage Program proudly presents its new initiative: short-term skill programs of varying durations—one month, three months, and six months. These dynamic programs are meticulously designed to equip participants with practical skills and knowledge tailored to meet current industry needs.

What sets our programs apart is their unique flavor of Buddhism. Each course is crafted in honor of Buddhist principles, integrating values of mindfulness, compassion, and ethical conduct. This enriching blend of practical skills and spiritual wisdom ensures a holistic learning experience.

With shorter durations, these courses offer flexibility and rapid skill acquisition, making them ideal for individuals with limited time availability or specific learning objectives. This initiative bridges the gap between academic learning and industry requirements, enhancing employability and fostering community development through the empowerment of a skilled workforce.

Join us in this transformative journey, gain the skills that drive success and community growth, and experience the profound impact of Buddhist-inspired education.
