Toolkits and Resources
We have several resources available to assist you in designing and delivering degrees and certificates that attract new non-traditional audiences to educational opportunities that are not part of our usual program array.
New Capstone Certificates or professional master’s degrees designed to serve new non-traditional audiences require planning. This toolkit provides academic units with program planning, marketing, budgeting, and online development tools to assist with planning a new program.
Noncredit programming, sometimes also known as continuing education programming, can include workshops, conferences, multi-week classes, and certificates. This toolkit provides program planning, marketing, budgeting, and online program development tools to help faculty and staff create new, or improve preexisting, noncredit programs for lifelong learners.
The campus is committed to continuing what is best about “traditional” education, including meaningful intellectual encounters, both inside and outside the classroom, between talented, committed faculty and qualified learners. The campus is also committed to supporting educational innovations, enhancing transformative learning, investigating the use of new pedagogies, and engaging new audiences.
