Sage Academy for Lifelong Learning
Because learning happens everywhere, and we can all learn much from each other
Goucher College invites active adult learners to join a new community of students
Introducing the Sage Academy for Lifelong Learning (Sage)
Sage is the embodiment of Goucher's commitment to lifelong learning. Through a multi-faceted and intergenerational approach, Sage's noncredit academics will enable active adult learners to engage directly with esteemed Goucher faculty, staff, students, and field professionals as they explore together a wide variety of compelling topics, as well as share ideas and stories in a socially and intellectually stimulating collegiate environment. Through Sage we encourage you to stretch your mind with stimulating classes and discussions, nurture your spirit with focused engagement, and share experiences with friends old and new across generations. Imagine the possibilities!
Fall 2019 Schedule
Programs are now under development. Details and schedule will be available this summer.
Thought leaders include Goucher faculty, staff, students, and field professionals.
Programs will be available a la carte, as offered during Spring 2019. Rates TBD.
Future plans (date TBD) include the option of becoming a Sage member through a yearly fee. This will include amenities such as the opportunity to audit one eligible graduate course per year, use of Goucher's Sports & Recreation Center, Library privileges, and the opportunity to participate in the discounted Sage Meal Plan.
How did Sage debut?
During Spring 2019's pilot phase, Sage programming consisted of 12 individual presentations (listed below) that took place on Goucher's campus. These programs encompassed academic enrichment, personal and professional development, and wellness. As Sage grows, plans include offering social events, special interest group activities, recreation, travel, and opportunities for networking, research, and service.
