Name of creator
The first non-credit programs were offered in Calgary through a branch of the University of Alberta Department of Extension. The University of Calgary Division of Continuing Education was formed in 1965 under the Vice-President (Academic) area. Headed by a Director, it informed the University community of the educational needs of society and provided the public with opportunities for a part-time educational experience through means such as summer session and evening credit programs and an extension program of non-credit courses, workshops, seminars and institutes. In 1976 the Division administered a lecture series for senior citizens by Grant MacEwan.
In 1977, the Division of Continuing Education became the Faculty of Continuing Education. In 2004, Continuing Education ceased being a faculty and became an academic unit called University of Calgary Continuing Education. In its revised role, it continued to work with faculties to identify, design and market high quality educational opportunities to lifelong adult learners in the community.
Deans of the Faculty of Continuing Education: R.S. Chapman, 1978-1983; A.B. Hamilton, 1983-1988; D.M. Kirby, 1988-1994; T.P. Keenan, 1994-2003; John Humphrey, 2003-2004 (Acting Dean).
