The goal of Western’s Community Education Division is to respond to community needs for lifelong learning opportunities. Local residents are encouraged to suggest classes and workshops they would like to have made available. Moreover, residents who have an expertise to share with the community are invited to contact the department. The Community Education program is self-supporting and does not receive state funds to sponsor its classes and workshops. These activities are funded entirely by student fees. Classes are offered for no credit and with no final grade assigned.
