How are CEU activities created?
Any person with knowledge of the educational needs of a group or individuals may originate a CEU activity. Often, consultation between the client group and the Program Coordinator of the Outreach and Continuing Education Department will initiate the creation of a CEU. In other cases, faculty members who are aware of educational needs in the community may recommend a CEU activity to the Outreach and Continuing Education Department.
Who can facilitate a CEU activity?
CEU activities may be taught by any person qualified to meet the needs of a specific client group. For that reason, recommendations by the client group are encouraged. Some CEU activities will be taught by WSU faculty, some by community resource persons and others by visiting experts.
Is there funding available for CEU activities?
All CEU activities are self-supporting. Client groups can minimize the cost by helping to provide resource personnel to teach or assist in teaching, by making needed supplies available, by providing instructional materials or by offering meeting space.
How do I obtain a record of my CEU participation?
Verification of participation documentation will be provided on request by the Outreach and Continuing Education Department. Transcripts may be obtained upon request by contacting the Registrars Office, Maxwell Hall, Warrior Hub, 507.457.5030. Participants must state that a transcript of CEU activities is desired. The Registrars transcript fee policy applies to both credit courses and CEU activities.
