Department Description and Cultural Expectations

The Division of Continuing and Distance Education serves graduate, off-campus and distance education students interested in exploring fields of study and those pursuing higher education through the University of South Dakota. The organization also provides oversight for testing online students and those using commerical tests such as the MPRE, LSAT, etc., special programs for adult learners and bridge programs. Off-campus and distance learners study at off-campus centers and through online (computer-mediated instruction and collaboration with other students and faculty), and web-conference study. Students are full-time and part-time, graduate and undergraduate, and/or degree seeking and non-degree seeking. CDE has an increasing national reach and serves students throughout the United States and internationally.

Continuing and Distance Education (CDE) has become a major contributor to USD, complimenting on-campus programs well. USD’s online courses and programs have experienced high demand in recent years. As a result, CDE has been characterized by significant growth.

CDE collaborates with academic units to offer educational experiences which provide students with authentic learning and advance student’s knowledge and skill through high-quality programs. Our fast-paced work culture creates the expectation for each staff member to be independently accountable for the areas under his/her direction and to develop professionally to the best of his/her ability.
