Welcome to the Division of Continuing Education!
Our division serves as the educational link between the university’s nationally recognized academic resources and the community in delivering life-long learning opportunities. We provide a variety of programs designed to improve the skills of the workforce, enhance societal and cultural understanding, facilitate healthy lifestyles, and address personal development and enrichment needs.
Included within the division is the English Language Program (ELP), a non-credit bearing program. This program offers an active, student-centered approach to learning. Students of the English Language Program are immersed in the same hands-on learning environment as an enrolled student at Georgia Southern University. In addition to providing students and program participants with the opportunity to gain entry into Georgia Southern University’s credit-bearing classes, student participants learning through ELP can also apply these same skills to professional and personal growth. Our goal is to help participants who are a part of the English Language Program to engage in academic curriculum and activities that result in the pursuit of further education at Georgia Southern University and on-going life-learning opportunities.
Our mission at the Division of Continuing Education is to support Georgia Southern University’s commitment to extend the learning environment beyond the classroom, promoting life success. We offer technologically advanced meeting, classroom, and conference facilities in Statesboro and Savannah. Our professional team is ready to provide conference and event management services from start to finish for corporate and social events, youth programs, religious retreats, and special events at your location or ours.
Guided by these commitments, our division has established the following vision:
- Bias for Action: Demonstrating initiative by anticipating and preparing for client needs, adopting a “can do” attitude, and responding positively to the needs of our clients.
- Accuracy: Having thoroughness in work and putting forth an effort to maximize productivity.
- Client-Centeredness: Listening and acting by understanding the client’s point of view and treating the client with the utmost respect.
- Accountability: Taking ownership of our responsibility to meet client goals, ensuring proper follow-through and execution. We are constantly looking for ways to better ourselves and our services to assist our clients in the best way possible.
We at the Division of Continuing Education strive to exceed your expectations. Please browse our various program and event offerings. We look forward to partnering with you to Accomplish More.
