Established in January 2017, the office was originally entitled Distance & Digital Learning, as proposed in the 2020 University Strategic Plan: Status to Stature.
In November 2018, our office was relabeled to Digital & Extended Learning (DXL) to align with expanded responsibilities beyond digital learning, including:
- Extend learning beyond traditional boundaries (format, pace, location, price, etc.)
- Develop, promote and administer professional, lifelong learning
- Incubation of new learning models, formats, practices, and services
DXL is associated with Community & Global Engagement (led by Dr. Nancy Hauck, Associate Provost) within the larger division of Academic Affairs.
We work closely with faculty, students and staff to advance, educate, promote and direct digital and extended learning offerings and services on campus, and beyond.
The following values guide our work, interactions and priorities.
Integrity: We do what we say we will do.
Service: We put the needs of students and colleagues at the heart of everything we do.
People: We value our people and promote diversity in our teams and thinking.
Civility: We foster an environment where people interact in a professional, competent, polite, and caring manner.
Collaboration: We believe that the best results are achieved through teamwork, sharing, and open communication.
Innovation: We promote and implement creative and responsive ideas and solutions.
Excellence: We are committed to a high standard of work and performance.
Simplicity: We devote our efforts toward the things that matter most.
Results: We strategically focus on outcomes and foster continuous improvement.
