Continuing Education and Extension (CEE) works with faculty and departments to extend the instructional, research, and public service resources of UWL to individuals and organizations in western Wisconsin communities and in other parts of the state. Some programs attract national and international audiences.
Graduate and undergraduate credit courses are offered off campus for part-time students, primarily K-12 educators, and health and human service professionals. Online bachelor’s and master's degree completion programs are also offered in collaboration with UW-Extension.
