UI Division of Continuing Education moves to U.S. Bank building Dec. 18
The University of Iowa Division of Continuing Education is moving to a new location Tuesday, Dec. 18. The move to the second floor of the U.S. Bank building at 30 S. Dubuque St. in Iowa City will provide better access for both on-campus and distance learning students, faculty, staff and the public once the move is complete, said Chet Rzonca, associate provost and dean of the UI Division of Continuing Education.
"Continuing education's move to downtown Iowa City provides an opportunity for the division to provide space that is convenient for both on-campus and distance learning students," Rzonca said.
Approximately 40 Division of Continuing Education staff members are moving to the new location from the International Center, located west of the Iowa River at 10 Ferson Ave., where the offices have been located since the mid-1980s.
The move includes division personnel assigned to both Distance Learning and the Center for Credit programs -- including Saturday and Evening Classes, Winter and Summer Sessions, and Guided Independent Study -- as well as the Office of the Dean, Administrative/Marketing Functions and the Center for Conferences.
Testing will continue through Dec. 22 in Room 152 of the International Center and move to the downtown location for spring 2008 coursework. The testing center in the new location will open Thursday, Jan. 3 in Room 201. To arrange for testing in the new location, call 1-800-272-6430 or 319-335-2575.
Reserved parking for visitors will not be available.

In partnership with university colleges and departments, the UI Division of Continuing Education provides high quality credit and noncredit courses, workshops and programs to both traditional and nontraditional learners using a variety of locations, schedules and technologies.
