Continuing Education is established with the fundamental principle that one never stops learning. Whether in a structured environment such as a brick and mortar classroom or in an on-line course room or even during everyday life each experience is an opportunity for knowledge attainment.
We at the School of Continuing Education and Professional Development strive daily to meet the needs of the constituency of our service area through certificate programs, courses designed to promote health and well-being, courses that feed into additional educational opportunities and on-line learning opportunities.
Our goal and mission is to make the College more accessible to the public and to meet community needs not served by traditional college programs.
