Dr. Beth Laves, Associate Vice President, DELO

Welcome to the Division of Extended Learning and Outreach (DELO) at Western Kentucky University. Our mission is to extend the education and information resources of WKU to the citizens of Kentucky and beyond. We are a dynamic group of friendly and energetic people who are focused on customer service and quality programming in a variety of formats.

If you are searching for online courses and programs check out our Online Learning pages. We offer credit WKU On Demand courses through on demand study. If you are interested in developing a specific program for your organization or business we can partner with you through a special cohort degree contract program.

We can develop custom made training for your business or organization through our Career & Workforce Development office. We work with many high schools on dual credit programs. Our department of Lifelong Learning can help you find a non-credit program for personal enrichment.

If you are looking for a physical location to hold your meetings or events of all types, I invite you to look at the Knicely Conference Center. You will find our state of the art facility to be one of the finest anywhere. We can also provide your organization with professional conferencing services.

We encourage students of all ages to participate in our program, Study Away, which develops off-campus domestic learning opportunities in credit or non-credit programs.

DELO is an exciting place and we would like to partner with you in solving your particular educational program and service needs. Please contact any of our dedicated staff to find out more.

We look forward to serving you.
