Overview

Established in 1913, the College has been committed to opening doors for over 100 years.

Mission

The College’s primary audience is adult learners. Our mission is to provide high-quality continuing education and lifelong learning opportunities for professional development, personal enrichment, career transitions, and academic growth.

Offerings

Each year, the College serves learners working toward degrees or certificates or accessing the University's credit courses and events as well as conferences.

Tens of thousands of additional learners benefit from the professional learning environment provided by our Continuing Education and Conference Center.

Additionally, the Minnesota English Language Program (MELP) helps international students improve English reading, writing, and speaking skills for success in a university classroom or in the workplace.

And through our High School Programs, juniors and seniors can earn college credit before leaving high school.

We are also home to Radio K, the award-winning student-run radio station of the University of Minnesota.
