The Society for Lifelong Learning at WKU (SLL) Annual Meeting and Open House will be held Sunday, August 27 from 2-4 p.m. at the Knicely Conference Center.
The public is invited to attend, along with SLL members, faculty and staff.

Course registration and membership enrollment will also be available.
The SLL is a member-driven organization for people 50 & over interested in high-quality, intellectually stimulating, non-credit programs and experiences. Members enjoy access to a vast number of courses each term, ranging from art, music and culture to economics, history and science.
“At Annual Meeting and Open House, people can engage with others 50 & over who have a passion for learning,” said Dr. Cindy Ehresman, lifelong learning program manager.
“It’s an excellent opportunity to experience what the SLL offers: intellectual development, personal growth, cultural exploration and social interaction.”
The SLL fall term begins October 16 and will offer over 25 classes and four Food For Thought events.
Ehresman stated that SLL volunteer have been hard at work developing two new initiatives this year, as well.
“We will encourage members to establish Interest Groups which will gather members with similar interests in a specific subject or hobby together,” said Ehresman. “We will also offer an exciting series of programs called An Evening With . . .”
According to Ehresman, the series will feature prominent thought leaders who, through a moderator-led interview, will provide insight into their thoughts on modern events and issues. The first will be held Wednesday, October 11 and will feature Chief Justice John D. Minton, Jr.
Additional speakers are currently being booked.
