Introducing the Division of Professional Studies

Fall campus

Distance and Continuing Education at UW-Platteville are undergoing a transformation. After months of consideration and research, Alternative Delivery Systems is being renamed and rebranded as the Division of Professional Studies. This new division encompasses three departments: The Center for Distance Learning (formerly the Distance Learning Center), the Continuing Education Institute (formerly the Office of Continuing Education), and the School of Graduate Studies.

This rebranding marks a new chapter that will continue to build on our long-standing reputation for delivering outstanding curriculum, instruction, support services, professional programming, and community outreach. It also signifies our growth in areas like academic research, corporate training, mobile-friendly learning, virtual reality experiences, and more.

As part of the Division of Professional Studies, students will have access to a wider variety of programming and opportunities. We call this combination of tradition and innovation the ultimate academic experience, an exciting prospect that will allow students to tailor their education to their needs.

This renaming and rebranding is beginning now and will continue to roll out throughout the year. Please continue to check media relations and social media for more information and to celebrate these developments!
