! 2017 is almost over.
Time is flying but our enthusiasm for learning is not. We’re ecstatic about this year’s new courses and certificate programs designed just for you. We’ve done our best to listen to your feedback, suggestions, and watch the trends in the business community. They have led us to bigger, better and more instructional ideas. We hope this newsletter and other communications have highlighted our new look and commitment to you and your lifelong learning.
As we near the end of the year, I especially want to thank the Program Directors of the Division. Because of their hard work and rapport with many of you, we have become the career and lifelong learning instructional choice in northeast Florida. Thanks Valerie Murphy, program director of Learn Jacksonville. Thank you Jessica Murray, program director for Professional Development. Last but certainly not least, thanks Jeanette Toohey, program director for Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI). BTW, if you haven’t seen the article about Jeanette’s exceptional work, check inside this newsletter.
I have a phenomenal team of directors, customer care advisors, and program assistants as well as a stellar new Marketing Coordinator, Terri Bailey. No one could do more than this team!
From all of us to you, we wish you a holiday season beyond your wildest dreams and many years of lifelong learning (with us). We are your ever-vigilant elves, hoping to delight you with the gift of Lifelong Learning.
Every best wish for you and yours,
Edythe Abdullah, JD
Dean, UNF Division of Continuing Education
