About Continuing and Professional Education

Mission

University of Oregon Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) connects UO with regional communities. Working in partnership with UO schools and colleges, selected vendors, and national credentialing associations, we serve the public by enabling learning outside of the traditional university setting. You do not have to be an admitted student at the University of Oregon to explore what Continuing and Professional Education has to offer. Individuals can access vibrant professional development opportunities, lifelong learning enrichment courses, and community engagement activities that serve nearly 5,000 participants annually.

Most Continuing and Professional Education programs are self-support and fee-based; they do not use state dollars. CPE reports to the Division of Student Services and Enrollment Management.
