The purpose of Continuing Studies is to facilitate flexible and creative learning opportunities for all who seek growth through education. Our vision is to achieve community recognition as being the leader in providing quality customized programs, empowering our students and customers to pursue educational opportunities.
Personal and professional development through lifelong learning is the special mission of Continuing Studies noncredit programs. Formal admittance to the university is not required to attend our programs. Noncredit programs do not coincide with the university schedule. Evening courses, certificate programs, daytime workshops, conferences, and special events are offered throughout the year. We release three course catalogs per year.
Noncredit Programs also offers customized training for business and industry, either on campus or at the work site. These cost effective, results-oriented programs have been utilized by a wide range of local companies.
Project AHEAD Enrichment Program for Children
Designed for high academic achievers in grades two through six, Project AHEAD is a series of enrichment classes offered three times per year. For each session, brochures detailing class offerings for that session are sent to area schools. Teachers determine which of their students meet the criteria for attendance. Children must be in the top 10–20 percent of their class, be consistent academic achievers, and be enthusiastic about learning opportunities outside of the regular classroom. The Project AHEAD program has been in operation for more than 20 years, and classes consistently receive excellent reviews from students and parents alike.
