The mission of "The Gateway Lifelong Learning Program" is to offer non-traditional, continuing and alternative academic educational opportunities for adult learners. The Gateway Program is designed to give working, non-traditional and community university transfer students an option to pursue a degree and / or personal/professional development.
Scheduling of courses, academic content, the teaching/learning style, accessibility and convenience characterize the non-traditional educational programs which help adult learners cope with the pressure of life, including those of home and work, while completing their educational goals and objectives. These academic programs address the learning needs of employed adults who prefer an educational delivery system that is participatory and experientially related to the workplace.
An example of an educational program consistent with the lifelong learning philosophy is the Organizational Management (OM) major, which is offered through the University's Gateway Program. This unique program offers an ideal alternative academic opportunity for the employed adult to complete the Bachelor of Science degree in an accelerated format while attending classes during the evening each week.
