What Is Lifelong Learning?

The Center for Lifelong Learning offers non-credit programming that is designed especially for those who are at least 50 years of age and/or retired. The center provides half-day, full-day and multiple-day programs and trips on a variety of topics and interests.
Each semester, the Center for Lifelong Learning plans two major activities: an all-day seminar on a current topic and a travel-study experience. The longer travel-study, which takes place during spring, has taken lifelong learners to most major cities east of the Mississippi. The fall over-nighter explores sites in Ohio, Indiana or Michigan.

Both are preceded by a campus class previewing the significance of the destination. The chartered motor coach becomes a traveling classroom.

All events are on a pay-as-you-participate basis. Lifelong learners have College library access and 350+ receive the CFLL newsletter.
