The mission of the Belfast Senior College is to provide intellectual stimulation, practical knowledge, social interaction and fun for persons 50 years of age or older


Our mission and overall direction of the Senior College are defined and refined by the Board of Trustees. The execution of the organization's mission falls to a collection of committees.  Most committees are standing committees. Occasionally an Ad Hoc committee is formed to respond to a one time need for planning.

All board members and all committee members are volunteers.

Trustees are elected by the membership at the annual meeting in September of each year.  Board terms are 3 years and are staggered. If you are interested in joining the Board we would welcome you!  Contact the the Nominating Committee.
