Training the region’s workforce is a crucial part of our role, but so is enriching civic life via engagement and cultural offerings. Through our work with partners like Illumina, Qualcomm, Manpower, and the San Diego Workforce Partnership, we create unique opportunities for members of our city’s diverse communities to engage and change their lives.
In early 2018, UC San Diego Division of Extended Studies moved away from the traditional course catalog format in favor of a more innovative, relevant way to spread our message of lifelong learning. We teamed up with San Diego Magazine and were proud to present our publication Accelerate, a collection of stories and information from our students, instructors, and local business professionals that shows the bigger picture of the impact Extension’s courses and programs have on San Diego. The face of education
With 40,000 copies of each issue of Accelerate distributed, we are telling our story to a broader audience than ever before and reaching people in ways that resonate while highlighting our unique programming. Accelerate is the first of its kind for Extension. We are not only connecting with more readers, we’re connecting on a deeper level. Learning about Extension’s offerings through real-life success stories, in-depth looks at economic trends, and practical career advice delivered in an engaging way only further demonstrates that it truly is the best place to reskill, advance your career, grow your business, and immerse yourself in the culture of the community. is changing. Think of Accelerate as the physical manifestation of this sentiment.
