Division of Continuing Studies

Studying at Memorial Union Terrace


The Division of Continuing Studies supports the mission of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the spirit of the Wisconsin Idea by providing educational resources to nontraditional students, lifelong learners and the community. Led by the Vice Provost for Lifelong Learning and Dean of Continuing Studies, the Division includes two academic departments providing continuing education programming, and collaborates with other continuing education units. The Continuing Studies’ mission is to advocate for and engage lifelong learners through high-quality and innovative programs and services.
