New Osher Lifelong Learning Institute to debut classes

Details (pdf)
The CSUS College of Continuing Education will showcase its fall schedule of new lifelong learning classes from 6 to 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 14 in Napa Hall.

The classes will be offered through the new Osher Lifelong Learning Institute on campus, which was established to provide educational opportunities to those 50 and older.

At the free introductory session, Bonnie L. Parks, executive director of the California Senior Worker Advocate Office, will speak about the benefits of lifelong learning for older adults. Individuals will also have the opportunity to meet staff and instructors and learn about the course offerings.

“This fall, participants will have the opportunity to experience the local theatre scene, learn about the Jazz Age through the novels of F. Scott Fitzgerald, explore the history and culture of Cuba, assess their financial portfolios, and adopt a commonsense, effective approach to fitness and weight loss,” says Elizabeth Hough, executive director of the institute.

“Our goal is to build a lively intellectual community of people aged 50 plus that helps participants to prepare for life transitions, enrich their personal and professional lives, and actively engage with the larger regional community.”

Research shows that people who stay mentally and physically active live longer and healthier lives.

The institute is funded by a grant from the Bernard Osher Foundation of San Francisco. Additional support for individual course offerings is provided by the B Street Theatre, California Musical Theatre, the CSUS College of Continuing Education, the CSUS department of theatre and dance, the Sacramento Theatre Company and Sutter Health.
