All courses provide adults 50 plus the opportunity to attend classes with their peers.
The Center for LifeLong Learning offers special half-day, full-day and multiple-day field trips to many interesting locations in and out of the state. Many of these field-trip adventures include an advance class held on the topic/site that is to be visited. Some of these field trips are to special cultural events in and around Cleveland.
The Center for LifeLong Learning also provides continuing education for health care professionals who work with older adults.
