Welcome Message from the Dean

Photograph of Dr. SosaWelcome to the College of Graduate and Continuing Education.

We work with Rowan University’s academic departments to create and offer education that meets the needs of today’s working professionals and employers while maintaining the standards and quality that have made Rowan an exceptional institution for ninety years. CGCE offerings include undergraduate and graduate degrees, certifications, professional development and personal enrichment held either in the traditional classroom setting at an accelerated pace, online, or on-site in the evening and weekends.

Our college has grown significantly since we launched our first online program in 2007. In a given term, we serve well over 2,500 students and professionals through degree programs, continuing education, and training activities. Perhaps most indicative of our growth and impact on the community has been the building of the Enterprise Center, dedicated to housing CGCE staff and activities. While approximately 60% of CGCE students pursue studies online or off-campus we have allocated two floors of the Enterprise Center to lectures and events through four state of the art multi-purpose classrooms, a nursing laboratory room, four executive/auditorium style classrooms, and a number of small break-out rooms for project-based discussions.

Whether you are a prospective CGCE student or potential industry partner, now is an exciting time to be a part of Rowan University. In spite of our growth, we continue to place particular emphasis on the quality of the service we provide our students and partners and continue offering programs and degrees in areas with the strongest employment outlook. We also remain dedicated to making CGCE programs accessible and affordable.

More information about the college and our offerings is provided throughout our website. If you are interested in speaking with a CGCE representative about your specific needs, please do not hesitate to contact us at (856) 256-4747 or CGCE@rowan.edu.

Thank you for visiting our web site.

Sincerely,

Horacio Sosa, Ph.D. Dean
