UC Retiree Learning Series

The Retirement Center is looking forward to another UC Retiree Learning Series for 2019-20.  The series was created as a way to provide off-campus learning opportunities and a chance for retirees to explore Bay Area retirement communities. Lectures run for approximately 1 hour, followed by a social hour and reception. Through the generous support provided by our host communities, there is no cost for participants to attend.
