Gov. Walker commends UW System for Flex Option
Governor Scott Walker commended the UW System after four additional UW campuses announced they would be offering programs in the UW Flexible Option due to its early success. UW-Parkside, UW-Stevens Point, UW-Stout and UW-Madison will now be offering certificate programs in a variety of fields within the UW Flexible Option.
Governor Walker said, "Offering addition program for competency-based learning is great news for the UW System and prospective students across Wisconsin. I am looking forward to watching the UW Flexible Option grow and provide additional education options for people who are looking for opportunities outside the conventional education model."
The UW Flexible Option is a collaborative effort between the UW System, UW Colleges, and UW-Extension's Division of Continuing Education, Online and E-Learning.
