Continuing Professional Studies Office Focuses on Mission of Access

Posted: December 14, 2009
Since its inception, the Continuing Professional Studies Office has encountered its share of new programs, partnerships, and opportunities to help others. Through it all, one mission has remained constant: providing access for part-time adult students who seek to further their education at Buffalo State.

Continuing Professional Studies’ roots can be traced back to 1983, when the Bulger Lifelong Learning Center was dedicated in response to the growing needs of nontraditional students. In the late 1990s, the name changed to the Continuing Education Office, and services shifted to Cleveland Hall 210. In 2005, the office was renamed again to the present Continuing Professional Studies, reflecting its broader constituency.

“We are the front door for adults who are considering returning to college or who are seeking professional development,” said Margaret Shaw-Burnett, associate vice president for continuing professional studies. “Adults return for various reasons, whether due to a job layoff, needing job certification requirements, changing careers, wanting a personal sense of accomplishment, or completing a degree. We provide access for them.”
