The Laura and Alvin Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University offers a wide variety of non-credit educational opportunities that draw from the broad academic disciplines of the university and the heritage of Jewish learning from Siegal College.
The programs create a connection between the academic world and the community. Through innovative and engaging courses and events, Siegal reaches lifelong learners of all ages at CWRU’s University Circle Campus, throughout greater Cleveland and beyond, and sets a national standard for the highest quality university-based continuing education programming. We provide opportunities for the public to interact with internationally renowned scholars, to share in their cutting edge research, and to be involved in the ongoing conversation of our histories, current events and our future. Newcomers, longtime friends and CWRU alumni have access to unique educational and social opportunities and experiences through the Siegal Lifelong Learning Program.
CWRU Alumni retain access to most of the KSL online databases that they used as students. While licensing restrictions do not allow alumni access to all of the CWRU online resources that are available to current students, the KSL Alumni Online library provides access to selected research databases covering a wide variety of subjects.
