About Programs for 50+ and Community Engagement

Healthy aging is relevant to everyone – at every age. At Programs for 50+ and Community Engagement, we are redefining aging through our innovative programs, continuous learning courses, and community events.

Whether you are an older adult learner transitioning in your career, or a senior enjoying retirement and looking to expand your experiences and social connections, we have something for you.

Programs for 50+ began with four, six-week courses and 200 students four decades ago and has grown to over 300 programs with 3,000-plus adult learners.

Today, our programs, courses, and events, are built on four key pillars:

  • Lifelong Learning
  • Community Engagement
  • Health and Wellness
  • Career Transitions

We remain dedicated to provide access to traditional and non-traditional learning and programs that support active learning and healthy aging.

Join us and discover how our courses and programs, many of which are now available online, can help you fulfill your goals.


We are very proud to collaborate with these leading organizations. Together, we support a strong vision for healthy aging through:

  • Lifelong learning programs
  • Research and Innovation
  • Community Engagement Initiatives
