Continuing Education classes are no longer being taught at the South Hill Park site. They’re now being taught at Pierce College Puyallup with the department’s main offices being moved to room A102 in the Administration building.
“The closure of the South Hill Park facility was due to budget reasons,” Director of Continuing Education Lisa Reeves said. “The programs housed there, Continuing Education, Worker Retraining and WorkFirst, paid a portion of the lease and utility costs. The majority of the building costs were paid by the Pierce College District.”
The Continuing Education program offers classes on a wide variety of subjects such as basket weaving and successful business management. College credit also is offered in travel programs like the field studies program in Hawaii. The program developers also plan to seek partnership opportunities with their academic divisions in the next year by offering professional development and entrepreneurship-related offerings.
Classes already are being taught at their new location. The move from South Hill Park to Pierce College Puyallup has not delayed the program, according to Reeves, as classes are primarily taught during the evening and on the weekend. Several classes have not begun yet and can still be registered for.
Any student or prospective students with questions about the Continuing Education program should contact the Continuing Education offices either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (253) 840-8452.
