Dalhousie University College of Continuing Education was created in July 2003 in response to growing needs nationally to retool personal and organizational skill sets. The College represents a fusion of talents, expertise, heritage and experience; it inspires lifelong learning.

The programs and services of the College are offered through a number of locations across campus and across Canada, face-to-face and online.

The mandate of the College is to provide leadership and support for Dalhousie in its efforts to meet the learning needs of the diverse individuals and communities it serves. Using the tools of program design and delivery, applied research, innovative teaching and technology, consulting, outreach and increased accessibility, the College partners with constituencies far beyond Dalhousie’s traditional student population.

The College is committed to enhancing Dalhousie’s contribution to regional and national economic, social and cultural development. It reinforces long-standing partnerships and builds new ones. It works closely with other faculties and units at Dalhousie. It connects with community groups, private sector and professional organizations, governments at all three levels, and a wide range of individuals and voluntary agencies.

Built upon this base, Dalhousie University College of Continuing Education programs are well-known and highly regarded outside the region; they serve regional, national, and international constituencies.
