CEIE Renamed College of Continuing and Professional Education
The former College of Extended and International Education has been renamed the College of Continuing and Professional Education (CCPE) after a collaborative process with internal and external stakeholders.
The name change, approved in August 2022, was prompted by the wider university’s strategic focus on cultivating lifelong learning to support students’ personal and professional development, as well as the transition of all university international education programs under the Division of Academic Affairs.
“The College of Continuing and Professional Education title is durable and sustainable for the long term,” Dean J. Kim McNutt said. “It is also consistent with the college’s mission of upskilling and reskilling the South Bay workforce through relevant, timely, and affordable education and training programs. CCPE is excited to embark on our next phase and build on our legacy at CSUDH.”
Since its establishment as a college in 2004, CCPE has delivered educational growth and career development for the South Bay region. CCPE now serves 12,000 students annually through its dynamic range of online and in-person programs, including certificate, credential, and individual courses, as well as customized programs for organizations through the Center for Training and Development.
