Lifelong Learning Opportunities
PLU Lectures, Presentations & Workshops
Learning doesn’t end when you graduate! PLU alumni continue their quest for knowledge, engagement, and critical thinking as they explore new ideas, challenge their beliefs, and listen to new perspectives from diverse groups. We are excited to offer a new series called PLU Experts & Insights, which are virtual webinars on interesting and current topics, highlighting experienced PLU faculty and alumni. PLU also hosts lectures, conferences, and workshops throughout the year that are open to the public!
Through a collaborative effort of the Office of Alumni & Student Connections and the Wang Center for Global and Community Engaged Education, PLU is now offering opportunities for study away like programs to PLU alumni and friends.
Stay connected with PLU by watching these recorded events, including lectures, forums, panels, conferences and more!
Learning is ForEver
Learning Is ForEver (LIFE) offers unique educational experiences to enrich and enhance the lives of its participants. Participants come from every walk of life, to learn together, exchange ideas, and explore the world. The LIFE Program Committee members work in collaboration with PLU’s Continuing Education Office and the Office of Alumni & Student Connections to offer classes on a variety of subjects on the campus of PLU. Classes are open to the public, and the community is encouraged to attend.
