Throughout its history, K-State’s Global Campus (formerly the Division of Continuing Education) has provided educational opportunities for adult learners. Since 1966 Global Campus has offered thousands of conferences, seminars, courses, and degree programs to distance education students and working professionals. In 1967 they received the name Division of Continuing Education and have expanded to many academic programs, including the establishment of distant learning in 1997. Sue Maes was named the interim dean in 2007, a position which was solidified in 2009. In 2014, the Division of Continuing Education was renamed as the Kansas State University Global Campus under the leadership of former dean Sue Maes, who held that position from 2007 to 2017. Today, Global Campus provides distance education to students from across the country and around the world. In addition to distance education, Global Campus provides coordination of professional meetings, conferences, and professional development through the Conferences and Noncredit Programs office. Global Campus also believes in fostering strong ties to community and the importance of lifelong learning and personal development for all through the UFM Community Learning Center.
