The Division of Continuing and Global Education serves as the University's hub of access and innovation, providing educational opportunities to a wide variety of audiences who would not otherwise be served. We offer multiple educational programs to the community, including:
- Bachelor's and master's degrees, as well as certificates
- Continuing education, professional development courses, and personal enrichment classes
- Global education programs like intensive language development, study abroad, and academic exchanges
We are honored to be a part of Fresno State’s Day of Giving. Our fundraising goals benefit three special programs:
Veterans Education Program
Transitional education and career services for veterans
The Veterans Education Program provides an educational re-entry opportunity for men and women who have served our country. Student veterans who complete the two-semester program are able to matriculate to Fresno State as full-time undergraduate students. The program also connects veterans with resources and support, providing a welcoming culture for veterans and preparing them for successful academic careers.
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI)
Continued learning and exploration for adults age 50+
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) is a program created for adults age 50+ who wish to continue learning and exploring for the sheer joy of it. Members are able to renew their enthusiasm for learning in a relaxed atmosphere, without entrance requirements, grades or exams. Supported by the Bernard Osher Foundation, the OLLI is a vibrant learning community offering a rich array of workshops, short courses, and field trips of particular interest to retired or semi-retired adults.
Study Abroad and International Exchanges
The opportunity to experience the world as your classroom
The Study Abroad and International Exchanges program is dedicated to inspiring and preparing students, faculty and staff to engage in global experiences. It is considered a high-impact learning practice that is conducive to success in an increasingly diversified and global economy. Fresno State maintains student exchange partnerships with more than 60 universities in other countries, participates with universities across the U.S. in several study abroad consortia, and assists faculty in organizing short-term group tours of selected countries to develop international cultural acumen. Every year, more than 500 Fresno State students make the commitment to become global citizens by participating in study abroad programs.
Thank you in advance for your consideration in donating to one of these amazing programs.
