Dawn Drake
Executive Director, Alternative Delivery Systems
Five years ago, we formed a task force to determine the future direction of distance education at UW-Platteville. As with any worthwhile planning process, the goals were very aggressive and far-reaching. As we reach the end of year four of this five-year plan, I am pleased to say that we have met the majority of the goals, even surpassing some. We have a few goals we are still working on and will continue to make progress in the upcoming fiscal year.
Time management key to engineering grad's success

Sakeena Jones
Engineering Graduate
Sakeena Jones was a bit skeptical when she enrolled in UW-Platteville's online Master of Science in Engineering program. She knew education was important for furthering her career, but was concerned an online program wouldn't provide the quality coursework she hoped for. However, now that she has put in the years of hard work and earned her degree, Jones says she has an education she can be proud of.

UW-Platteville's official textbook provider for online courses is MBS Direct.
