ALEXANDRIA, VA., Februrary 1, 1999 -- Will Philipp, senior director of PBS's Adult Learning Service (ALS), the nation's largest source of college credit telecourses, has been tapped to be PBS's vice president of lifelong learning. A 15-year PBS veteran, Mr. Philipp will continue to oversee the Adult Learning Service while enlarging its scope of programming to include PBS teleWEBcourses on the Internet, PBS SilverPrime educational programming for baby boomers and a variety of certificate programs providing credentials for working adults.

Under Mr. Philipp's guidance, ALS and its partner colleges and PBS member stations have seen student enrollment grow to more than 450,000 a year. Mr. Philipp led the 1994 launch of PBS Going the Distance, which enables students to earn a two-year college degree entirely through distance learning. He has helped raise $40 million since 1992 for ALS projects and supervised the creation of ALS's presence on the Web (www.pbs.org/als).

"Will Philipp blends deep knowledge of and commitment to lifelong learning, a keen understanding of the unique PBS-station-college partnership that has pioneered distance learning for adults who want to pursue a college education, and determination to move forward into new technologies and approaches to learning," said Jinny Goldstein, PBS senior vice president of learning services. "We're delighted to recognize all of Will's accomplishments and increase his responsibilities in this important area of PBS's mission."

Mr. Philipp joined PBS in 1984 as ALS's associate director of marketing, was promoted to director of ALS in 1992 and was named senior director in 1996. Before coming to PBS, Mr. Philipp was associate dean of continuing and career education at Catonsville (Maryland) Community College for ten years and served two years in the Peace Corps in Ayacucho, Peru.

A native of Maryland, Mr. Philipp earned a bachelor of arts degree in English from Baltimore's Loyola College, a master of science degree in mass communications from Syracuse University and a master of international administration degree from the School for International Training in Brattleboro, Vermont. He chaired the Maryland Consortium for Gerontology in Higher Education and was named a Johns Hopkins Fellow in organizational and community systems in 1975.

PBS, headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, is a private, nonprofit media enterprise owned and operated by the nation's 349 public television stations. A trusted community resource, PBS uses the power of noncommercial television, the Internet and other media to enrich the lives of all Americans through quality programs and education services that inform, inspire and delight. Available to 99 percent of American homes with televisions and to an increasing number of digital multimedia households, PBS serves nearly 100 million people each week.
