University for Seniors
  •  ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The University for Seniors is a new life-long learning initiative at AUB, the first of its kind in Lebanon and the Middle East. It gives older adults (who are 50 and above) the opportunity to share their wisdom and passion, to learn things they have always wanted to learn in a friendly academic environment and to interact socially with other seniors, AUB faculty and students.

    ​​​​​​​​​​Today’s seniors want to remain intellectually challenged and socially engaged, actively contributing to their community. Our seniors are accomplished, energetic, sociable, and generous. They have valuable life and professional experiences to share.

     
    We would love to hear from you if you are 50+ years of age and would like to join the mailing list, suggest a new study group or lecture topic, or even lead a study group or give a lecture.​

    The UfS was forced to suspend its Spring 2020 term due to COVID-19 in order to minimize physical contact; however, this does not mean at all limiting contact in general. Now more than ever we need to be socially connected; and to stay mentally, emotionally and spiritually stimulated. Check our Facebook page for all the talks, videos, tips and links that we have so far shared with you
