About Us

Professional and Continuing Education Vision

Oregon State University's Professional and Continuing Education engages and inspires individuals, organizations and communities through a variety of professional and continuing education opportunities, as well as related services. 

Professional and Continuing Education Mission

OSU's Professional and Continuing Education provides service and leadership to connect learners across Oregon and beyond with accessible educational opportunities.

With our expertise and experience, we can help you develop, deploy and successfully market your educational experience. We work with Oregon State instructors and departments to engage learners through world-class online and onsite professional development. Our team also collaborates with external partners (companies, agencies and non-profit organizations) to design and deploy state-of-the-art workforce training for their teams. The Professional and Continuing Education brand reflects our organization's increasingly diverse capabilities and role as an innovation hub in these service areas.

Examples include:

  • Initiative-driven workforce projects (such as the Outdoor Recreation Economy Initiative),
  • Grant/broader impact support (in partnership with OSU faculty)
  • Internal (OSU) projects (such as human resources critical training for all University employees), and
  • Technology/marketing services (including website and marketing campaign management for internal partners)

These capabilities extend our team’s technology-forward solutions beyond the classroom and into the workforce with instructional design and multimedia/web development; non-credit enrollment management/systems; communication/marketing strategy, project management and more.
