Provost's Continuing Education Innovation Fund
to Be Announced at Continuing Education Expo

RELEASED: Aug. 20, 2007

EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Continuing Education will host its first Expo on Wednesday, Aug. 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Skylight Lounge of Davies Center. The Expo will give UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff the opportunity to:

  • learn how they can teach a Continuing Education course or be involved in other ways.
  • find out how they can apply for the new Provost's Continuing Education Innovation fund.
  • meet CE staff and enjoy coffee and biscotti.
  • enter a door prize drawing to win one of more than $1,500 worth of products and gift certificates donated by local merchants.

"The Provost's Continuing Education Innovation Fund will facilitate new program development for nontraditional students that expands and enhances our regional services, impact and connections," said Dr. Steven Tallant, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. The fund provides up to $2,500 to faculty and staff for developing a new program. Program proposals are evaluated on fit with the UW-Eau Claire and Continuing Education missions, perceived market need or demand, and financial feasibility.

"The UW-Eau Claire Continuing Education unit is dependent on innovation to maintain its operation as viable," said George Kroeninger, director of Continuing Education. "This program development initiative will serve as a catalyst to enhance and expand the University's outreach activity, particularly activity that can be self-sustaining."

Dr. Alan Rieck, associate professor of music education and choral music, used the fund to develop curriculum for a music camp for students in grades 8 through 12. "The Provost's Continuing Education Innovation Fund made our first Clearwater Music Camp possible this year and ensured its success," said Rieck.
