The Office of Lifelong Learning at Texas Woman's University provides quality, innovative lifelong learning opportunities to a diverse student population by extending the educational resources of Texas Woman's University. TWU Lifelong Learning is based on a model that is successful at many universities. Often called Extended Education or Continuing Studies, universities organize this function to accommodate the many unique opportunities that exist, but which fit neither the mission nor the expertise of traditional academic units. Lifelong Learning at TWU is a support unit in the context of the university goals. We organize around three basic areas of activity.    

Distance Learning

Provide leadership for Distance Learning policy and planning. Aid in developing, implementing, and evaluating Distance Learning courses/programs, support services, and technology. Coordinate necessary academic support services for all Distance Learning initiatives. Encourage and develop administrative structures, policies and reward systems that facilitate a rapid response to the needs of students and ensure that Distance Learning students receive an appropriate level of services.    

Continuing Education

Continuing Education helps meet educational goals that serve both the community and professionals. Texas Woman's University is committed to meeting the need for ongoing professional development in fields relating to academic credit programs by expending our offerings in Continuing Education in a manner which will enhance TWU's general visibility, as well as attract students to our credit programs. Lifelong Learning assists faculty, staff, and off-campus users of the University facilities in Continuing Education program planning and administration, information services, continuing education (CEU) procedures, non-academic programs of external groups and the identification of new program areas. Lifelong Learning non-credit activities are self-supporting auxiliary enterprises of the University.

Non-Traditional Programs

Academic partnerships on special projects with various funding strategies, especially evening and weekend or off-campus opportunities.
