Flexibility is key to meeting the needs of the adult or non-traditional learner. That’s where we come in.

You’re busy. We get it. Between work, family, and other obligations our goals sometimes get lost in the mix. School of Extended Learning (SXL) at Governors State University offers flexible non-degree options for working professionals, Veterans, active-duty military, the limited-English speaking population, moms re-entering the workforce, the incarcerated and seniors seeking continued enrichment opportunities. We work with business, non-profit, government, health and education sectors to provide the latest in-demand training for the Chicago Southland region and beyond.

Our 2021 Career-scape sets the landscape for your career and personal success!

Well, we've finally made it. 2020 rocked our very foundations and forced us to look at the cracks, the paint, and the raw materials. It literally brought us home. If one keyword phrase could describe 2020, besides "pandemic fatigue," it would be "work from home." Frankly, we don't see this trend changing in 2021, but we do see some new opportunities that have arisen from this remote working trend. 

 

The top 7 words on our minds are security, order, equity, technology, balance, mentorship, and joy. Professionals who bring these to the table should gain new ground on the job.  Our spring catalog offers multiple ways to help you conquer 2021. Information security experts keep us all on the remote track, protecting our online networks. Project managers and Lean Six Sigma Green Belts bring order to people and processes, while ensuring business sustainability. Managers who understand diversity, equity, and inclusion and lead with compassion build the brightest, most innovative teams. Tech skills win the day. Where would we be without them?  

If there is one thing 2020 made crystal clear, it is that balance in work and life is no longer a buzz word; it is essential to survival in a remote working environment. Our remedy: holistic full-body workouts over intense, rigorous exercise.

Mentorship is essential to successful work, especially for teachers! Lean in to those who have gone before you to avoid pitfalls.

Lastly, make space for Joy--the word for 2021. Do what you love. Start something new that inspires you. Learn the art of food and wine pairing, so when covid-19 is a thing of the past, you are ready to entertain friends in your newly redecorated, clutter-free, or renovated space. We think that clean walk-in closet makes the perfect sound-booth from which to launch your radio-ready voiceover career.

 Download the spring catalog to start something new in 2021.
