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. The Senior Scholars Council, an elected group of volunteers, helps with the program’s administration and participates in planning the classes.

Senior Scholars is supported by a generous gift from the Jane and Jon Outcalt Foundation.
