A Longhorn History of Excellence
For more than a century, Extended Campus programs have helped the university serve the people of Texas, developing innovative solutions to the challenges of the day, preparing for the future and expanding access to the university’s resources and experts.
We were born in 1909 to "increase the usefulness of the University to the people of Texas." Throughout our history, campus-wide collaboration has resulted in innovations and cutting-edge delivery to serve students and their communities. Visionaries tackled barriers to education with offerings that evolved from by-mail correspondence into 24/7 online courses.
Extended Campus Today
Our exceptional faculty and UT resources are the stars of our programs. Our instructors have real-world experience and literally “practice what they teach.” We facilitate for-credit and non-credit professional and continuing education for more than 75,000 students, a number that is accelerating as workforce needs expand.
Our Vision, Your Future
As the world changes in unforeseen ways, our forward-looking education teams anticipate workforce and economic demands to provide sought-after skills just being imagined. By focusing on the future, we serve our thriving Texas community and its employers as well as our diverse community of learners.
