Announcing the new Office of Extended Studies


Contributed by Rob Gearhart

As of June 1, the reorganization of the Division of Graduate & Professional Studies (GPS) will take effect and the new Office of Extended Studies (OES) will open its doors for business.

OES will be led by Rob Gearhart, Assistant Provost for Online Learning and Extended Studies, and will continue to administer the summer and winter sessions, pre-college programs (summer college for high school students and summer piano institute), the IC-CU exchange program, extramural study, and professional certificate programs and workshops.   

Five staff members from GPS will form the Extended Studies team and apply their areas of expertise in slightly redefined roles.
