UNLV Continuing Education (CE) recently won a LERN award for their unit-wide restructuring of staff responsibilities last year. The restructuring cut staffing costs while simultaneously increasing revenue with new class offerings.

As a customer, the most important thing to know about the management changes is that they have put CE in a better position to respond to your learning interests and needs. A dedicated operational team now takes care of day-to-day tasks such as registration, contracts, and logistics. That frees up a separate programming team to spend time creating new courses and assessing existing courses.

UNLV CE sees growth opportunities especially in work force development programs.

Current trends include:

  • More people are seeking professional certificates to enter a specific workforce;
  • Traditional college students are supplementing their degrees with skill-based non-credit courses;
  • Students are looking at non-traditional routes to enter jobs;
  • Companies are scaling back on internal human resource training staff and turning instead to contract custom training programs.

UNLV CE is looking forward to spending more time focused on what the Las Vegas audience is looking for and what they need from a training program. Customers are encouraged to share their feedback and ideas by emailing continuing.education@unlv.edu or by calling 702-895-3394.
