Lifelong Learning Mission:

The College of the Mainland Lifelong Learning Program’s mission is to provide learning opportunities for adult students 50 years of age and older by offering personal enrichment classes in a positive, accepting and intergenerational environment. The Lifelong Learning Program staff collaborates with academic departments and the community to develop programs that meet existing and emerging educational needs for this population.
