Senior Scholars

Senior Scholars is an 11-week program that meets three afternoons per week and features academic lectures by university faculty and local experts on a variety of topics. While the format is lecture-style, the afternoons are informal and interactive with an opportunity to ask questions and discuss the topics of the day. 

PLEASE NOTE: Senior Scholars was originally scheduled to be held in person but has now changed to remote format.

The registration options are listed here by the day, or with cost savings by registering for the full semester.
