Lifelong Learning at Swarthmore
Message from the Director
Gil Rose, Lippincott Professor Emeritus of Modern and Classical Languages
"It all began with the new millennium. Previously, serious, multi-week, liberal arts courses exclusively for adults could be found only at the big universities. Then in 2002, a group of senior Swarthmore faculty devised a small but ambitious program to be staffed entirely by our cohort and offered to Philadelphia-area alumni of the college as well as other residents..."
