Congratulations to our Continuing Education Registration Implementation Team in receiving the 2013 Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Program Collaboration!


The team, pictured above, worked tirelessly over the past several years to implement new software allowing Extension Conference Centers to better serve the students of over 2,000 non-credit continuing education programs and 60,000 annual registrants.


UW Colleges Chancellor Ray Cross presented the award September 12th at the 2013 Chancellor's Awards Ceremony at The Pyle Center.


"The project magnitude was enormous, the challenges great and the process smotth," said Cross, "thanks to this talented team".
