The word catalyst comes to us from the world of chemistry, and still conjures images of a scientist working away in a lab, beakers bubbling away, combining materials in hopes of creating something new. The chemist adds a catalyst to the mix to speed up the process - or change it completely, opening up new possibilities.

The College of Extended Studies is many things to many people - a community, an educational institution, a social hub, a place to network - but above all, the College is a catalyst, the ingredient that’s added to create change in your life.
