Community Services

The Office of Community Services provides varied educational, vocational, personal interest, and cultural opportunities. The program – one of the most innovative in the State University system – strives to meet the lifelong- learning and personal-enrichment needs of area residents, both youngsters and adults, by offering noncredit courses, training programs, workshops, camps, community events, and a highly acclaimed concert/lecture program, which is part of the Gemini Series.

Noncredit class offerings alone feature more than two hundred titles, with courses starting each month throughout the year. At the same time, senior citizens can participate in activities offered through the Adult Learning Institute.

Meanwhile, the Gemini Series offers a vibrant calendar of cultural events that has featured such blues artists as Buddy Guy and the late Pinetop Perkins as well theatrical presentations and lectures.
