Noncredit Programs

As the Division moves to establish long-term educational relationships between the University and the public, noncredit programming becomes increasingly important. Programs are developed for postgraduate audiences who value significant intellectual depth and breadth but do not need additional credit or degree study. Noncredit programming offers a flexibility that permits a focused exploration of a complex issue in a format that best suits each offering's distinctive educational agenda. The flexibility of noncredit programming also permits faculty from a variety of disciplines to share their insights on a given subject in a way that would not be possible in traditional class formats.

The Division's noncredit programming links University faculty with professors and renowned scholars from other institutions; international, political, cultural, and corporate leaders; and noted authors and artists. The Division's noncredit programs are developed through collaborative relationships among the Division's program development staff, University faculty members, and representatives of selected external constituencies. The program development staff is dedicated to maintaining the internal and external contacts necessary to ensure that the best opportunities exist for the University to extend its research and teaching resources to the Commonwealth and the nation.

Organizations and individuals are encouraged to call and discuss their educational needs with the Division's programming staff. New programs can be developed in response to the long-term educational needs of organizations. For further information, call (804) 982-5397.
