Senior Learning

University Circle Interactive Cleveland (UCIC) promotes lifelong learning by connecting senior citizens weekly to the exciting exhibits, resources, and ideas of the University Circle institutions.

University Circle Inc. has been on a mission to connect its institutions’ rich resources using interactive technologies.  Over the last several years, we have built a “Lifelong Learning Consortium” for older learners in northeast Ohio.  This regional program offers unique learning experiences at senior centers and retirement communities with scholars, experts, and cultural educators.

UCIC curates weekly programs for retirement communities or monthly programs for senior community centers.  These offerings are customized for communities with videoconferences or on-site outreach that are paired with follow-up trips to plays, exhibitions, concerts or cultural events.  In addition, intergenerational learning pilot programs have taken place at Fatima Center (Hough neighborhood); Harvard-Lee Community Services (Harvard-Lee neighborhood); Fairhill Partners (Buckeye-Shaker neighborhood) from 2016 -2018.

Adult Life-Long Learning at the Circle

On any given day, there are many paths for you to ignite your passion, spark a new interest or explore something you have always wanted to know more about at University Circle. It is a place of possibilities for knowledge and sharing.

Coffee with a Curator

Join us for coffee and conversation with University Circle’s best and brightest curators. Over the course of four weeks, you will have the opportunity to sit and chat with different curators from University Circle’s most distinguished institutions. This is your opportunity to discover what curators do, why they do it, how they got their start, and how their research and discoveries impact the museums, your lives and, in some cases, the world. Contact us to learn more.
