Learn Community Education Department

Community Education Department

In 1973 UCI's Community Education Department was established to connect the resources of University Circle’s world-class institutions to students of all ages and backgrounds through informal education programs. The team focuses its work on removing barriers so all people can partake in University Circle educational experiences. While we aim to ensure that all learners get connected to the incredible resources of University Circle, we concentrate much of our attention on the Cleveland Metropolitan School District schools and our neighbors adjacent to the Circle. 

Today, the team manages programs that enhance the lives of children and adults throughout the region and leads an informal learning ecosystem that supports school students, families, and cultural partners that serve the Greater University Circle area.  

You might already know that UCI’s Department of Community Education (CE) serves over 10,000 learners annually across the region through its community education programs; but after fifty years of serving the neighborhoods surrounding the Circle, our mission has grown to include more than our programs. The Community Education team serves as an essential connector between nearby schools, families, and the institutions and organizations that have valuable learning resources to share; we’re building an ecosystem for year-round informal learning and increasing UCI’s impact on neighborhood youth, all through the vibrant arts and culture resources available in University Circle and beyond.
