The Renaissance Academy is the University's and region's premier lifelong learning program for adults, senior and retirees. It is based on the premise that learning should never cease, that keeping the mind intellectually, creatively and culturally active fundamentally enriches and invigorates lives. Single lectures, short courses, day trips, computer classes, film series, life enrichment, and travel abroad are some of the programs offered at the Renaissance Academy. There are no exams or grades, just learning for the joy of learning with friends, neighbors and peers.
