The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' Office of Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) offers academic programs to traditional and non-degree seeking students. CPE, also known as Extended Studies, Distance Education, and Outreach Programs, is a mainstay of lifelong learning, providing opportunities for learners of many ages and circumstances to enhance their education, to follow a passion, or to try something new. Some CPE programs provide continuing education units (CEUs) to practicing professionals in fields that require state licensure and professional development. CPE works with academic departments to offer courses, workshops, events, conferences, summer camps, webinars, speaker series, travel study courses within the United States, and helps develop specialized programs for businesses, government agencies, and non-profit organizations.
