The Credit/Non-Credit Divide: Breaking Down the Wall
Fouts, Susan; Mallory, Judy
Journal of Continuing Higher Education, v58 n3 p180-183 2010
Programs awarding academic credit and programs awarding continuing education credit coexist on university campuses but often do not communicate or collaborate. This article explores the components of a successful program that reaches across the credit-noncredit divide to engage and serve the community. While most theoretical models are based on a macro level of engagement with stakeholders in the highest level of the organizations, this partnership involves collaboration and cooperation on a micro level within the institution and is focused on service to the individual education participant. This model of partnership between continuing education and academic credit education benefits a wide variety of stakeholders and ultimately benefits both the community and the academic institution.
