Online Education unit renamed
June 5, 2009
KALAMAZOO--Acting at its June 4 meeting, the Western Michigan University Board of Trustees approved a recommendation to change the name of the University's fast-growing e-learning unit to better reflect the current mission of the unit.
Online Education is the new name of the unit that is part of WMU's Extended University Programs. The name change is effective July 1.
Online Education is charged with managing WMU's e-learning and instructional support for both faculty and students in that arena. The new name replaces the name Academic Technology and Instructional Services--ATIS--which was adopted when the unit also housed other responsibilities now largely assumed by the Office of Information Technology.
