Expanding Horizons

Centerra's Rangeview Three building is the site of UNC's newest off-campus office and classroom facility.

Set against the backdrop of the foothills in a convenient location at the crossroads of U.S. 34 and Interstate 25, the University of Northern Colorado's new Center at Centerra keeps the working professional in mind.

Offered primarily on nights and weekends, classes in degree, professional development and non-credit certificate programs in a variety of disciplines promise to appeal to a range of interests.

The first classes started there this week. Initially, two programs are being offered at Centerra: a post-baccalaureate education program for college graduates who hold degrees in other disciplines and want to become elementary teachers, and a K-12 endorsement program in linguistically diverse education.

From March through July, workshops in Teaching with Primary Sources, funded through a Library of Congress grant, will be offered.

And this summer, a graduate program in Reading will begin at Centerra. Degree and certificate program in various disciplines are being developed and when ready will be offered at Centerra.

"We want to look at where we can provide resources that aren't currently being provided," said Jeanie York, director of UNC's Extended Studies.
