“I am honored to be able to help lead our unit forward in order to expand the educational reach of the university to youth, working professionals, returning adults, and their families.  Many of our online graduate programs provide important flexibility for students.  Additionally, our programs are well regarded in their fields and provide an important service to our communities.  Our continuing education services extend the university’s mission well beyond credit-coursework to enrich lives.   ” Vick said. “My goal is work with our various offices to build on our existing strengths and to better serve our region and our campus community.”
