The purpose of Gladney University is to equip clients and professionals with the knowledge they need to help provide positive and healthy outcomes for the children we serve. Gladney University provides adoptive parents with education and support before, during and after their adoption. This education and support helps Gladney provide the finest adoption experience possible, and its part of Gladney’s promise of family for life.
Additionally, Gladney University provides medical professionals, counselors, social service advocates and community members with cutting edge continuing education programs by offering relevant and engaging, web-based and in person educational adoption and child welfare resources.
Gladney is uniquely positioned to provide outstanding training to parents and professionals because of our 130-year history of serving families and children.
Our staff is highly qualified, experienced and compassionate. This combination creates dynamic and very successful training programs.

Most people believe you are either born with empathy or you aren’t. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Empathy is a skill that can be learned and developed. Whether you are new to the field, or have decades of experience, we invite you to come learn on how to demonstrate empathy with others and create connections with those you serve.
