University of Oregon Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) connects UO with regional communities. Working in partnership with UO schools and colleges, selected vendors, and national credentialing associations, CPE serves the public by enabling learning outside of the traditional university setting. Participants do not have to be admitted students at the University of Oregon to participate in CPE programs. Individuals can access vibrant professional development opportunities, lifelong learning enrichment courses, and community engagement activities that serve nearly 5,000 participants annually at local continuing ed programs.
Through CPE’s mission to produce or aid in the delivery of educational programs for purposes of lifelong learning and professional development, the Conference Services sub-unit provides an important resource to this mission in two ways: first, by providing specialized operational support to academic departments, individual faculty members in their hosting of on-campus events and noncredit workshops, or other auxiliary units (e.g. UO Housing); second, by providing technically-sophisticated and integrated conference management and customer service solutions to externally-facing professional associations for the administration and production of educational conferences and tradeshows (both small and large-scale: 10,000+ attendees).
Continuing and Professional Education programs are self-supported and fee-based; they do not use state dollars. CPE reports to the Division of Student Services and Enrollment Management.
The IT department is the technological backbone of the Conference Services team, supporting the fulfillment of all contracted services that are critical to the successful operation of events and meetings including, but not limited to the creation of database-driven interactive websites and web applications, databases and systems integrations, administration of databases, and deployment of scalable computer networks at offsite events.
The IT Services Manager reports directly to the Director of Conference Services.
