Details for the CEANY Friday, May 10th, 2019 Brown Bag Webinar

Topic: Advocacy: Strategies to Communicate Your Units Value Internally

Description: Continuing Education Units are often the innovative and forward thinking arm of college institutions. In this period of disruption and fundamental shifts in higher education, the ability to nimbly develop programs that are responsive and accessible to students and administer them in sustainable ways is a huge asset that our campuses often don't take full advantage of or completely understand. In this webinar we'll discuss strategies to convey the worth and opportunity of Continuing Education units at your college and ways to internally advocate for a place at the forefront of your institution.

In this presentation, learn how you could generate reliable reports that meet the needs of decision-makers at your organization, ways to address emerging needs, share experiences and communication strategies, develop standards and share results that reflect the value and potential of your operation to the larger campus community.    

Presenters: Jill Pippin, Dean of Extended Learning Division at SUNY Oswego. David Kohn, Director of Continuing and Professional Education at Orange Community College. 


Jill Pippin is the Dean of Extended Learning Division at SUNY Oswego, which offers programs and services such as Summer and Winter Sessions, Instructional Design services, Online and Distance Learning Degrees, Evening & Part Time Degrees, Adult & Non Traditional Student Advisement, High School Concurrent Enrollment, English for Academic Purposes, Intensive English, Testing & Proctoring, Veteran & Military Services, Non Credit Professional Development, Contract Training, Youth Programs as well as the SUNY Oswego Metro Center Branch Campus and Phoenix Center ancillary sites and programs and services offered in the Watertown / Fort Drum area.

As a collaborative partner, the Division works closely with all offices on campus and external partners to assess an educational need, and craft innovative, flexible and responsive ways to promote lifelong learning and continuing education.

Prior to joining SUNY Oswego in 2014, Jill worked as Dean for Continuing Education and a member of the senior academic leadership team responsible for innovative and community-oriented programs for adult and nontraditional students at SUNY Jefferson Community College and at various industry and higher education positions.    Jill holds a Masters in Business Administration from Franklin University and a Bachelors degree in Communication Studies – Interpersonal from SUNY Oswego.
