Program Development
Over my career, I've worked with more than 50 colleges and universities to create more than 1,000 unique programs. Most were just emerging ideas when I was brought in, and by the time I was done many of those were well on their way to become regional and even global successes. Through it all I found that Program Development was the ultimate growth lever for Continuing Education departments.

Your presence in CE is growing. Your institution continues to ask more of you. It’s time to go from a department to a School or a College within your university. With all the benefits and opportunities that come with the upgrade, it is a no-brainer and should be on everyone’s strategic plan.
