Off Grounds

With the establishment of a Bureau of Extension in 1915, the University of Virginia demonstrated its commitment to continuing education and began an organized effort to make its academic resources available to the citizens of the Commonwealth outside Charlottesville. In 1920 the University opened its first extension office in Richmond. Since that time, Continuing Education has created a unique network of Continuing Education centers and program offices across the state, which assess and respond to the educational needs of Virginians in every city and county. These operations supplement the academic offerings of local institutions of higher education with the variety of courses and level of instruction which a comprehensive university can offer.

The directors of these off-Grounds centers and offices organize, administer, and evaluate continuing education programs throughout their geographic service areas, assisted by staff members who specialize in programs for business and industry, education, government, and other disciplines.
