Conference Services

Conference Services provides administrative support to a variety of conferences and noncredit workshops, including events offered by academic departments and individual faculty members.

Welcome to Continuing and Professional Education

To reflect the programmatic changes following the integration with Student Services and Enrollment Management, Vice President Roger Thompson announced a name change from Academic Extension to Continuing and Professional Education. The change went into effect April 23, 2018, and it will take a few months to fully implement our new branding.

CPE will continue to:

  • host vibrant lifelong learning programs;
  • provide conference services for professional development events in the K12 sector; and
  • support professional education opportunities in partnership with UO schools and colleges and national credentialing associations.
