Spring Semester Dates 2018

Your Curriculum Committee is excited to once again offer a very diverse curriculum for this coming spring semester, which begins March 22. The Spring Course Catalog will be available the first week in February, so keep an eye out. We have courses on gardening, technology, tech giants, watercolor painting, writing, abolition, French, figure drawing, the limits of reason, and literature from Chaucer to contemporary short stories. We also have several courses on the state of our nation– its evolution, where we are today, and compelling notions on what to do now. Please join us for another challenging and rewarding semester.

Communications Policy

Adopted by the SC Board in June, 2016

The purpose of SC advertising or announcements, including but not limited to the website, E-news, or classroom announcements, is to promote Senior College, and to inform the membership and the community of courses, special events, speakers, or projects that Senior College is directly involved with. Volunteer opportunities and other community events that Senior College (including the Community Service Committee) is not directly involved with (see following paragraph) are beyond the scope and purpose of the website, E-news, and classroom announcements, or any other advertisements, and are not permitted.

A Senior College committee or group is directly involved with a non-profit group or community event when the members of that committee or group have agreed, for some specified period of time (e.g., for the upcoming year, for a certain month, or for a particular date), that its members will participate in a particular non-profit or community event, at a specified time and place. If an SC committee or group merely urges (by mentioning or advertising) the SC membership at large to support a non-profit, or to attend a community event, then that does not count as “direct involvement” by the committee or group. To count as “direct involvement,” the committee or group members themselves must have committed to participate in some specific event (for a non-profit organization or in a community event). Given they have done this, if they also wish to invite members of the SC community at large to participate in that specific event, then that is permissible.
