If you’ve been to the NAU-Extended Campuses website before
today, you likely notice a very BIG change.
It’s my pleasure to welcome you to our new website—fully
redesigned from the ground up. It looks awesome and works great, no matter what
technology or device you’re using.
It may take a little time to get used to, but you’ll see
that we’ve made finding classes, degrees, campuses, and events
easier and faster than ever.
My favorite feature? This—our new Re:THINK blog! Now you can stay informed and get helpful
advice on how to make the most of your college journey.
It’s quite a
But it’s nothing new. Northern Arizona University has been helping
to transform higher education for decades.
It started with professors trekking around the state via literal
planes, trains and automobiles in 1960s and 70s.
Today, NAU-Extended Campuses is a leader in distance learning,
with some 8,000 students—nearly 1/3 of NAU’s total student body—taking classes
online or at one of our campuses throughout Arizona.
This year, we became the first public university in the
nation to offer self-paced online degrees based on competency, not the credit
hour (check out Personalized Learning).
But, really, it’s not
about us. It’s about you.
Every day, I get to meet and hear from learners just like
you. I have the unique pleasure of hearing your beautiful stories of
transformation—how you went back to school, how you earned your degree at night
or on the weekend, how you changed careers, how you found your true passion,
how you did it for your kids.
Throughout this new website, you’ll get to read and see and hear
the inspiring stories of some of your peers—and, hopefully one day, your story
as well. (Please, tell us your story!)
Transformation takes time and effort and it never really
ends. I promise we’ll keep moving forward.
