Jupiter’s Lifelong Learning Society

Posted by Lorea Thomson on Sunday, April 10th, 2016 at 2:56pm.

 

Florida Atlantic University's Jupiter Lifelong Learning Society is “dedicated to enriching the intellectual and social lives of adult learners by offering stimulating educational opportunities, taught by outstanding university faculty and guest lecturers, designed to broaden students' understanding of diverse cultural, societal, scientific and global issues.”

Most people associate learning with formal education at school, college, university etc.  We are all told, from an early age, that we should ‘get a good education’.  However, ‘schooling’ is only one type of learning. There are many other opportunities to further your knowledge and develop the skills you need throughout life.  There is no age limit on learning.  Lifelong learning can enhance ones understanding of the world around us, provide additional and enhanced opportunities and improve our quality of life.

The Lifelong Learning Society in Jupiter was fashioned to provide adults the chance to enrich their lives with university level, non-credit courses sans homework, projects and tests.  Lectures and courses are offered at the Lifelong Learning Society campus, F.A.U.’s John D. MacArthur Campus, 5353 Parkside Drive, Jupiter.
