UC Retiree Learning Series

The UCRLS program has been suspended for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester. 

The  UC Retiree Learning 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.
