The University has extended its community outreach with the opening of classes at Levis Commons in Perrysburg. A ribbon-cutting was hosted Aug. 26 by BGSU President Carol Cartwright, who said of the newly renovated facility, “It’s designed to bring education and services to working professionals near where they work, live and play.”
All BGSU Levis Commons classes are aimed at professionals and adult learners and will be held in the evenings. Classes are in 1655 N. Wilkinson Way, behind Levis Commons shops.
The Professional MBA program began classes Aug. 24 with 36 students enrolled—a 50 percent increase over last semester. The collaborative Master’s in Public Health program is holding three courses at Levis this semester.
Continuing & Extended Education (CEE) is also offering professional development classes and conferences at the new location. An administrative office will be open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays for information and recruiting.
Fall offerings through CEE include “Contextual Intelligence for Leadership Development,” a one-day seminar for leaders, executives and managers that will be held Sept. 18. Taught by Dr. Matthew Kutz, human movement, sport and leisure studies, the seminar will help leaders learn to manage the business environment so their organizations can survive and succeed despite rapid change.
CEE is also offering a graduate professional-development course for educators, “Teaching about Germany: The Holocaust to the Present,” with award-winning instructor Thomas Sorosiak. The class will be held on Thursdays, Oct. 8-29.
