Adventures in Lifelong Learning (ALL) invites seniors who have a commitment to learning to attend its twice monthly lectures, as well as join the organization and participate in its other activities.
ALL is a community partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Parkside that provides seniors with educational, creative and social opportunities through lectures, classes, focus groups, day trips and special events.
Lectures offered in September include:
Refugee 101: What You Need to Know
Monday, Sept. 17, 2-3 p.m.
Join Annamarie Carlson, Special Programs Coordinator of the International Institute of Wisconsin for this lecture. According to the United Nations, the world is facing the highest number of people displaced from their homes since WWII. This crisis in humanity has generated broad debate from the international to the local level. Learn about who qualifies as a refugee, where they are coming from, the international and local refugee resettlement process, the challenges and struggles refugees face, the role of local agencies, and how you can help create a welcoming multicultural community.
50 Years Celebration: Parkside Is 50 Years Old
Monday, Sept. 24, 2-3 p.m.
Lisa Marie Barber is a Professor of Art at UW-Parkside and is Co-chair of the campus “50 Years Celebration”. Over the past 18 months, Lisa Marie has been working with her colleagues to establish and publicize events that highlight UW-Parkside’s history and its contributions to higher education. The celebration will highlight Parkside’s bold beginning and its focus on the amazing future. She will describe the 2018-2019 calendar of events that will celebrate and illustrate UW-Parkside’s 50 years of contributions to our students, communities, and region. Birthday cake and coffee will be served outside of the Student Center Cinema before the lecture begins.
ALL members may attend at no charge and non-members are welcome to attend with the hope that they will join the organization for a cost of $45 for a 12-month membership.
In addition to the twice monthly free lectures, members may also participate in classes offered at a small fee, day trips and focus groups.
