With the adoption of the UPEI Strategic Plan 2013-2018 earlier this year, the University is poised to become a leader in offering experiential learning opportunities. UPEI has looked at a variety of ways to best support students in seizing these opportunities and has decided to group several existing functions under a centralized office.
Vice-President Academic Christian Lacroix is excited to announce that the Centre for Life-Long Learning is expanding to take on these additional functions, and effective immediately, will be known as the Office of Skills Development and Learning.
In addition to maintaining offerings for adult learners, professional development programs, the Explore program, and e-learning services, the new Office of Skills Development and Learning will incorporate Career Services, previously housed at Student Affairs, and centralize the administration of Co-operative Education programs (currently offered in the School of Business and Faculty of Science).
The Office expects to announce several further initiatives this fall.
