Gaining knowledge and staying informed about local, global, and current events are crucial to personal development and enrichment. From exploring new ideas and perspectives to connecting with a wider community, lifelong learning has benefits in the workplace and beyond.
In today’s fast-paced world, it can be a challenge to find the time to seek out knowledge, so the Enrichment Program at the University of Denver has developed unique opportunities for lifelong learning in ever-changing times.
This fall, more than 40 courses and one-night lectures are being offered entirely online via Zoom through the Enrichment Program. These info-packed courses don’t come with tests or homework; they are simply bite-sized sessions that provide a deeper understanding of current issues, personal interests, and professional skills.
Several options offered in September are dedicated to subjects that affect local, national, and global business, community, and economy. One-night lectures include:
