A Message From The President
Adult education is one of the most rewarding endeavors in which on can engage. We have all heard the term “life long learning”, which embodies a desire to “stay current and advance ourselves”. Theses phrases sound like truisms, but there is no more rewarding experience then to open doors and to explore new opportunities. Our graduate and professional studies programs recognize this fact, and our intensive programs, cohorts, online education, and traditional programs are tailor made to meet the learning needs and lifestyles of adults.
In the fall of 2003 Endicott was pleased to open a newly renovated facility on South campus dedicated to our adult population. The William and Tia Van Loan School of graduate and professional studies offer a welcoming space for faculty, staff, and students studying in this program.
When Bill Van Loan joined our board of trustees, he and his wife, Tia, became enthusiastic supporters of the college. It was through his generosity and foresight that Endicott was able to realize the dream of offering outstanding facilities that reinforce our strong commitment to your success.
Best wishes for your studies and professional success.
Dr. Richard E. Wylie
