Continuing Education's Facelift is Underway!

The Continuing Education office is in the midst of a flooring face-lift, and staff has packed their offices and we're working remotely until the project is completed on June 8 (estimate).

Pardon our mess as we temporarily conduct business under some trying conditions that may include a disruption in our work. The copy machine, the phones, the computers, and all of the staff will be impacted until the work is complete.

Please make a note on your calendar that a visit to Continuing Education will be a challenge for awhile and that the staff will be working remotely, or in the Continuing Education basement. Thanks in advance for your patience and cooperation!
