Continuing Education

NC IOPL’s curriculum has remained true to the original mission of its founders and has also evolved to be current and relevant to the needs of today’s students. The purpose of the Continuing Education program is to provide opportunities for alumni to be better informed about issues affecting the current political environment in NC, as well as opportunities to simply “brush up” on previously-learned skills.

In each of the spring and fall semesters, two class modules are open to all alumni wanting to attend. One class is held in Greensboro and the other in Raleigh. Information on the next modules available to all alumni will be distributed via email and on the website.
