Senior enrichment starts with curiosity and ends in lifelong friendships.
Designed for the retired and semi-retired, The Knowledge Exchange is a lifelong learning program that meets on Fridays for eight-week sessions in fall, winter and spring. Full-length courses, workshops and "Lunch and Learn" presentations as offered.
Courses are non-credit and led by a team of dedicated volunteers made up of GSU
faculty, alumni and community experts. A volunteer Advisory Committee made up
of Exchange class leaders and participants assist in overseeing the curriculum
and sustaining quality programming. Topics include: History, Law, Liberal Arts, Current Events, Foreign Policy, Music/Film,
Philosophy and more with lively discussions. Lunch is a great time to know other Exchange students, continue classroom discussions and
share classroom and life experiences. Participants
of The Knowledge Exchange enjoy a relaxed and friendly environment on the GSU
campus and have formed a community of shared learning, social interaction and
the free exchange of opinions and ideas.
