Rockland Graduate Campus Hosts Lifelong Learners

Learning Collaborative Offers Courses for Adults


Hudson Graduate Center at Rockland,
Long Island University

If you've retired from your job, but have no plans to retire from learning, or you're just looking to share a fulfilling educational experience with others who have similar interests, there is a continuing program at the Rockland Graduate Campus of Long Island University that's tailored precisely for lifelong learners.

The Learning Collaborative at the Rockland Graduate Campus has been offering students the opportunity to gather one day a week to discuss, debate and explore a specific topic of interest to the group. The setting is relaxed and intimate, allowing people from various fields the opportunity to share their knowledge. The small classes are led by an instructor who may or may not be from the world of academia, but whose background and expertise uniquely qualify them for the subject.

The courses last six weeks and explore such topics as film and class conflict, the Romantic period of classical music, bioethics and exploring the cosmos, among others. Participants choose two classes in the morning session and one class in the afternoon. There will be an interesting speaker during each lunch-time period. The next program will begin on Tuesday, April 1, 2008. Additional session dates are April 8, 15, 22, 29 and May 6, 2008 and the classes meet from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. All classes have limited enrollments to foster discussion and are filled on a first-come basis.

For more information, contact the Center for Professional Development and Lifelong Learning at the Rockland Graduate Campus by calling (845) 359-7200, ext. 5434. The Rockland Graduate Campus is located at 70 Route 340 in Orangeburg, NY. It is a half-mile east of Route 303 and can be reached from Exit 5N off the Palisades Parkway.
