Three Service Institutes (Health, Human, and Public) offer a variety of pre-service and in-service programs to meet the manpower needs of cooperating public agencies. The Open Learning Division serves minority and other nontraditional students utilizing self-paced media delivery systems and an open entry - open exit, competency-based format. The Division of Continuing Education and Community Services offers job-related courses, courses related to the handicapped, courses for older adults, public issues courses, and community education activities.
