CHICO — While higher education has appealed to the not-so-young for decades, more working adults are attracted to Chico State University for professional development.
Working adults find an array of class series, workshops and conferences that are fast-tracked and are flexible to meld with career schedules.
Over 2009 and 2010, more than 11,730 enrollments occurred in courses offered by the University’s Center for Regional and Continuing Education. These students took the classes either for credit or simply for the knowledge.
More than 170 Northern California after school program teachers, staff members, program coordinators, and administrators assembled on the CSU, Chico campus from July 26-28 for the 2010 After School Professional Development Institute.
