The Office of Continuing Education at the Blackfeet Community College provides a venue for the college to offer courses, educational opportunities, and special events outside the offered university curriculum. The courses provided by the Office of Continuing Education are targeted primarily toward the larger community and/or specific interest groups.
The Office of Continuing Education offers programs, lecture series, and courses with the shared mission of the Blackfeet Community College to provide a venue for teaching skills for living and making a living. The courses, workshops, and programs are only offered for general credit at this time. **
Courses and programs offered through continuing education will also help build community awareness and cooperation. In addition, the continuing education offerings will also publicize the college to the community and even a larger base with some of its programs. This will help with student recruitment to the College’s degree programs as well as with retention by building strong relationships with the College’s faculty and staff to potential students who take part in the courses and programs offered by the Office of Continuing Education. Courses and programs will be offered via partnerships and collaborative efforts with entities and businesses. Courses will focus and provide a competitive advantage because BCC continuing courses are:
A values-based, innovative, and offer current curriculum
Can be offered at the request of instructors, potential students, or community interest groups
