The Office for Educational Outreach has a clear mission – to train individuals, build futures, create networks and change lives. The increasing pace of change places an ever-growing demand on the need for appropriate, responsive and innovative training and education. The Office for Educational Outreach stays at the forefront of this training and education revolution and will continue to be recognized as the leader in professional development and customized training.
Our strengths include an established and credible reputation, a diverse range of professional development and personal enrichment classes, state-of-the-art facilities, links with industry, business, and organizations, flexibility, and a qualified and experienced staff.
In addition to customized training, professional, and personal enrichment courses, the Office for Educational Outreach also coordinates ElderCollege. ElderCollege provides learning opportunities for older adults who wish to enrich their lifestyle through self-directed education and to contribute to the social and cultural development of the community. ElderCollege is able to present a vibrant array of classes, activities, and seminars due to the many hours of volunteer time of many local area residents and professionals. This enables us to provide high quality personal enrichment classes for a minimal fee. If you would like to share your life's skills with us in any capacity.
