learning in retirement

now this is true life-long learning:

the osher lifelong learning institute offers challenging learning without tests for seasoned learners over 50yrs old. an astonishing $1million endowment gift to the university of california san diego from the bernard osher foundation will support expanded outreach and continue to broaden membership and activities for learning in retirement.

“This gift demonstrates the Foundation’s appreciation for the great strides we have made in developing a wide array of intellectually stimulating, learning opportunities for older learners,” said Mary Walshok, associate vice chancellor for public programs and dean of Extension.

with the majority of baby boomers now considering retirement, i’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of this sort initiative. it is a positive spin on the looming workforce shortage that we’re facing, and i’m very interested in this topic, so if any of you loyal readers know of other opportunities such as this one, i’d love to hear about it.
