Learning Collaborative Offers Courses for Adults


Hudson Graduate Center at Rockland,
Long Island University

Orangeburg, N.Y. – Topics ranging from bioethics to jazz, from “The Bible You Never Knew” to “Darwin: The Man and Power of His Ideas” are up for discussion at the Learning Collaborative, a program of six-week classes for adults at the Rockland Graduate Campus of Long Island University.

Offered on Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., with two classes in the morning and one in the afternoon, Learning Collaborative classes provide lifelong learners a place to discuss, debate and explore interesting subjects in a relaxed setting. Each small class is 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 program was created and is sustained by a group of retired Rockland residents. Classes begin April 6 and continue for six Tuesdays.

An Open House for the Learning Collaborative will be held Tuesday, March 23 at 11 a.m. at the Rockland Graduate Campus in Orangeburg, NY. A complete course listing is available on the Continuing Education page at the Rockland Graduate Campus Web site, or by calling (845) 359-7200 ext. 5434.

In addition to classes, the Learning Collaborative presents interesting guest speakers during the lunch break between morning and afternoon sessions.

The program is offered in cooperation with the Center for Professional Development and Lifelong Learning at the Rockland Graduate Campus.

The Campus is located at 70 Route 340 in Orangeburg, New York.
