The mission of the BYU Division of Continuing Education is to "extend the services and spirit of the university. . .1" by sponsoring and facilitating opportunities for lifelong learning that link the university with Latter-day Saints and other friends of the university who seek learning experiences that are consistent with the unique mission of BYU. Some opportunities include intensive study and activity within the stimulating setting of the BYU campus. Learning opportunities are also provided online and in other inspiring settings.
