The College of Adult and Lifelong Learning at The University of Toledo is celebrating five years of mentoring nontraditional students.
The fifth anniversary will be commemorated at the college’s annual scholarship recognition dinner Tuesday, June 2, at 6 p.m. at the Inverness Club.
The college provides career and life coaching, degree completion and academic support to new, continuing and re-entering adult learners in a respectful and nurturing environment.
Success Coaches help adult students transition to college life and establish a foundation for educational attainment and career success.
“Each year we honor our scholarship recipients and the generosity of our donors that make it possible. This year is a very special one since we are also celebrating the five-year anniversary of the College of Adult and Lifelong Learning,” said Dr. Dennis Lettman, dean of the college. “The success of our college is measured by the success of our students.”
The college utilizes the Prior Learning Assessment, which allows students to receive up to 30 credit hours for relevant work, volunteer and life experiences.
The college offers class flexibility to work with a wide range of personal and professional schedules.
As part of the college, the Military Service Center provides customized support for veterans and assists with the transition from military service to the classroom and beyond.
The College of Adult and Lifelong Learning is an evolution of University College, which served nontraditional students for 40 years, from 1970 to 2010.
