UC Retiree Learning Series

The UCRLS programs continue virtually online!

As we shelter in place we are pleased to be able to continue the UC Retiree Learning Series virtually via Zoom through the generous support of Belmont Village Albany and Covia . When it is safe once again to meet in person, we look forward to providing the UCRLS as an off-campus learning program with the chance for retirees to explore Bay Area retirement communities.
