Who We Are

Extended Campus brings together continuing and professional education offerings from programs across The University of Texas at Austin. We connect you to industry leaders and top faculty to enhance your professional development and growth.

Our Mission

The mission of the Extended Campus at The University of Texas at Austin is to enhance the university’s impact by expanding access to a first-class education to a broad range of students in order to promote lifelong learning while addressing economic and workforce development needs in Texas and beyond.

As UT Austin’s President Jay Hartzell noted in his 2022 State of the University Address, “Education is accelerating its shift from a one-time experience to a life-long engagement as we skill, upskill and reskill large portions of the workforce.”

Our History

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.
