OCT. 28, 2005--Current and prospective students, community members and other lifelong learners seeking course information can access information a new and improved web site at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls .

The UW-RF Office of Outreach and Graduate Studies launched a new web site this year in hopes to provide enhanced services for visitors.  

The web site doesn't just look different; it is different.   "We wanted to make it easier for people who are not yet students here to find out about our programs and courses," said Katrina Larsen, director of UW-RF outreach.

The new site features a class schedule lookup function that allows visitors to find both credit and noncredit classes and course descriptions, as well as a list of program requirements for all graduate degrees and certificates. The site also includes a new search function and site map for ease of navigation. In addition, visitors can register online for most courses.

Information on the site is grouped into logical categories including Graduate Studies, Continuing Education and Community Programs.   "We understand that different people have different information needs," Larsen said.   People pursuing graduate degrees or certificates can go directly to a Graduate Studies section, she explained.   Those interested in just taking a course or two can find what they are looking for in Continuing Education.   And, those looking for community or youth events can find them under Community Programs.

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Outreach and Graduate Studies office provides lifelong learners with academic and professional development programs that are practical, flexible, convenient and affordable.   For more information, visit the UW-RF outreach office Web site at www.uwrf.edu/outreach or contact the outreach office at outreach@uwrf.edu or call 1-800-228-5607.
