When you received and browsed through the Spring 2013 Continuing Education Catalog, you noticed some big changes. We combined the professional development and personal enrichment courses back into one catalog. The look and content were different -- a more attractive design, concise course descriptions, and easy-to-find course details, such as instructor, time, date, and location. We also revised the table of contents and categories so you could get where you wanted quicker.
We love to be liked!
