History is on Our Side

We’ve been offering high-quality lifelong education options to people in the Fraser Valley since 1974, and are well known for our high standards and consistent  quality. We work with other UFV departments to develop certificates and short courses related to our academic specialities.

In addition to the many courses found here, we can provide custom, tailor-made courses for your company on a contract basis – daytime, weekends, or evening. We also welcome any suggestions you may have for new courses. 

Cheryl Isaac, Director
UFV Continuing Studies

Cheryl has seen and done a lot in her 37 years with UFV. For most of her career, Cheryl has been associated with Continuing Studies (through‌ several name and mandate changes). There were stints with other areas, but as she retires this spring as director of Continuing Studies, this is the area that is closest to her heart.

Throughout her career she has been a strong advocate of community responsive education. She organized dozens of conferences, lectures, and workshops on issues of relevance to Fraser Valley communities, and programmed countless courses and workshops. Continuing education was a natural fit for Cheryl, who loves to learn new things, meet new people, and introduce new ideas and knowledge to her communities.
