According to officials, Culver Stockton will offer hundreds of affordable non-credit online courses through the agreement.
“This partnership is a natural fit,” said Dr. Kim Gaither, Interim Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Culver-Stockton. “We understand the value of career training in today’s ever-changing job market and the need to provide flexible options for today’s learners to quickly and effectively upskill or reskill to expand their employment opportunities. Ed2go has a proven background that will help us to meet our communities’ learning needs best.”
