Adult and nontraditional learners’ portal to UD offers wide variety of programming

Fulfilling the University of Delaware’s vision through professional education, continuing studies and lifelong learning, UD’s Division of Professional and Continuing Studies (UD PCS) facilitated more than 25,000 credit, noncredit and Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) enrollments in 2020.

A breakdown of the overall enrollment numbers and a discussion of how UD PCS programs and services achieve the University’s vision of enhancing student success, building an environment of inclusive excellence, investing in intellectual and physical capital, strengthening interdisciplinary and global programs, and fostering a spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship are presented in the 2020 Impact Report.

“The continuous need for lifelong learning does not cease during a global pandemic, so UD PCS is proud to provide access to just-in-time education to community members who have been adversely affected by COVID-19,” said George Irvine, associate vice provost for UD PCS. “Despite new challenges, we will continue to help learners of all ages upskill, reskill and refocus.”
