Mission

Who are we and what do we do?

Continuing Education/Extension (CEE) can work with you to develop educational programs (both credit and non-credit) that enable individuals to earn degrees and certificates, meet licensure requirements, accomplish professional goals, participate in conferences, and pursue leisure and academic interests.

"It was a pleasure working with the CEE office. The overall success of my workshops can clearly be attributed in part to the very successful work they do."
~~ Jim Wiener Ph.D., River Studies

Who do we work with?

University academic and administrative units; area school districts and educational agencies; health care organizations; professional associations; local, state and federal governments; and various community organizations.

"The cooperation of the CEE office and it's programmers is tremendous. In partnership, we developed a very successful environmental education program. I would heartily recommend using the Continuing Education office when planning programs, workshops and scientific meetings."
~~ Michael Dewy, U.S. Geological Survey, Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center (retired)
