Penn State’s World Campus looks to future of online learning - LORI FALCE, Centre Daily

When Penn State’s World Campus started in 1998, it had a grant and a dream. Eighteen years later, the World Campus is a national leader in online education, with students around the globe and a stack of accolades from U.S. News and World Report for both its undergraduate and graduate programs. “It’s successful because it’s embedded in the core of the university,” Craig Weidemann told the Penn State trustees committee on outreach, development and community relations on Thursday. It was Weidemann’s last meeting as the vice president of outreach and vice provost for online education. He retires Dec. 31. He leaves behind a program that has 20,000 students and 10 percent growth in enrollment each year. The campus is on track to hit 35,000 students by 2025.
