Historical Abstract:Northeastern University's (NU) Center for Continuing Education (CCE) offered a variety of credit and non-credit evening classes for students and professionals. The Office of Adult and Continuing Education (OACE) opened in 1960 under the direction of Dr. Albert E. Everett. OACE was comprised of four departments: Bureau of Business and Industrial Training, Special Programs in Cooperation with Civic Groups, Special Programs in Cooperation with Professional and Trade Groups, and State-of-the-Art Engineering (beginning in 1963). In 1963, OACE was renamed CCE. Its responsibilities were limited to offering non-credit courses to meet the needs of a largely professional student body. The breadth and diversity of course offerings in the 1960s and early 1970s testify to the CCE's flexibility. In addition to offering practical business, engineering, and health science courses, CCE offered courses of special interest to women and minorities. In 1973, CCE was incorporated into NU's University College but became independent again in 1986. In 1986, CCE's programs were reclassified into eight categories: State-of-the-Art Engineering, Building Technology, Business, Emergency Medical Training, Graphic Arts, Health Management, Nursing, Paralegal Studies, and Test Preparation. In 1995, the CCE was again incorporated into University College.
