Congratulations from Acting Dean Rod Lastra
On behalf of my colleagues in the Division of Extended Education at the University of Manitoba, I want to congratulate you on your achievements. Earning a Certificate or Letter of Accomplishment at any time is worth celebrating but at this particularly challenging time in our lives, it is even more noteworthy. The pandemic has reminded us all of the importance of being able to adapt quickly, learn independently, and search for new ways to apply what we learn, and I trust that the courses you have taken through Extended Education have allowed you to “extend” your learning in these ways. Although there continues to be uncertainty about when our current challenges will end, we have faith that all 498 of you graduating from 20 different programs will be well-positioned to thrive in the post-COVID era, thanks to the time you spent in Extended Education. Congratulations once again and best wishes for the future. Stay safe and keep well!
