UCDA shares webinars and more

The University & College Designers Association (UCDA) is happy to offer GDC members discounted access to the UCDA Essential Series Webinars.


UCDA ESSENTIAL SERIES are 60- or 90-minute webinars on timely and relevant topics for creative professionals both in and out of the educational arena. We know that learning doesn’t stop. During this time when location-based events are being cancelled, the ability to meet and learn from your peers is more essential than ever.

UCDA is offering GDC members a discounted rate of $20 (save $30 off the non-member rate of $50). The special GDC registration code is listed in Member Perks behind the member login area.

Price for each in the series: $20 UCDA members | $50 non-members
GDC members may use the special discount code listed in the member perks page when registering. The discount code only applies to the live webinars. After the webinars air, the webinars will be available for purchase on-demand at the already lower rate.
