UW System expands opportunities for adult learners | Announcements | dailyunion.com
The University of Wisconsin System is expanding opportunities for adult learners. At the recent UW System Board of Regents meeting at UW-Whitewater, the regents heard about the education options that are available, or soon will be available, to nontraditional adult learners across the UW System.
“Throughout Wisconsin and the nation, people of all ages are seeking a quality education that will help them thrive in the workplace and become more well-rounded individuals,” President Ray Cross said. “The UW System is consistently working to expand access to nontraditional students, including adult learners.”
About 815,000 Wisconsin residents 25 and older have earned some college credit but do not have a degree, according to U.S. Census data. The UW System is focusing on strategies to attract and serve these students who are professionally oriented.
