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.
The Enrichment Program has been facilitating connections through the love of learning for nearly 20 years, offering an opportunity to challenge conventional thought, examine new topics, and encourage critical thinking.
This winter, 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 insight.
Start your journey by joining one or all courses in the Enrichment Program’s Back-to-School Sampler series from January 11-18, 2021.
