Give to Online and Continuing Education

Giving to Online and Continuing Education

In 1912, Henry Marshall Tory established the Department of Extension (now Online and Continuing Education) at the University of Alberta to “take the university to the people”. For over 100 years we have been doing exactly that. This would not have been possible without the support of our community.

Through your gifts, Online and Continuing Education is able to play an important role in connecting the university to the surrounding community and the industries that help to shape Alberta’s economy, developing impactful programming and supporting adult learners as they grow in their careers.

Your donation to Online and Continuing Education will empower individuals, communities, and society as a whole.

Online and Continuing Education General Fund

Online and Continuing Education develops and delivers more than 300 courses and 40+ part-time continuing and professional education programs tailored primarily to entry-level to mid-career learners. More than 7,000 students attend our classes every year, improving their professional skills and helping to keep Alberta’s workforce up-to-date with our changing economic and technological landscape. 

Our learners shape the future—and your support will continue to place Online and Continuing Education at the forefront of community engagement, taking the University to the people locally, nationally, and internationally.
