About Outreach and Continuing Education
Outreach and Continuing Education (OCE) at Western Washington University had its beginnings in 1912 when the first home study courses were created for teachers. Fast forward to the 21st century where we have expanded and diversified its Western Washington University offerings in Bellingham and throughout the Puget Sound region, emphasizing community college partnerships in Everett, Port Angeles, Bremerton, and Poulsbo to deliver degree programs and offer learning options for youth to seniors, as well as a variety of international education opportunities.
