Academy for Lifelong Learning celebrating 30th anniversary of educating seniors

The Academy for Lifelong Learning is celebrating a milestone. On July 1, it will mark 30 years of providing educational and social opportunities for retired seniors.

The academy is part of the SUNY Empire State College network and has more than 500 members.

Instructors for the Academy are generally retired teachers and Skidmore professors.

Courses range in a variety of topics depending on the instructor’s expertise – from birding to poetry and writing appreciation.

Executive Director Jeff Shinaman says the Academy for Lifelong Learning is looking ahead to its next 30 years, and he hopes the academy will continue to grow.
