Dean Barbara Calhoun addresses potential continuing education students

Welcome to the College of Continuing and Professional Education at Kennesaw State University. We know your life is complex, and the one thing we can do to help you create balance is to offer you the very best in professional and personal development. Your success is our goal, and we are committed to helping you develop the tools you need, whether that includes focusing on a new career, advancing in your present career, or perhaps helping to nurture your curiosity for a new hobby or leisure-time activity. We are dedicated to helping you make a difference in your life.

Even though I'm involved on a daily basis, I continue to be awed by the size, scope, and innovation of this program. Our team is constantly in search of new areas in which we can serve our community and address the needs of students and local business. Our distinguished faculty of instructors are people with impressive professional credentials and a passion for teaching - two qualities that when combined, provide you with immeasurable value.

I encourage you to spend time getting to know our program, and to explore all that you can accomplish here. From KIDS College to OLLI (for people age 50 and older), and everything in between, you will find the resources, skills, ideas, network and excitement you need to reinvigorate your professional and personal endeavors.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
