The Knowledge Exchange, a program on a wide range of topics for adults age 55 and older from the School of Extended Learning at Governors State University, is registering students for spring classes.
The peer-led classes are intended to provide a relaxed environment open to shared learning and the free exchange of opinions and ideas.
A group of volunteers, including GSU faculty and many former Exchange students, will offer courses on a variety of subjects such as the Civil War, Native-American history, cinema studies, play readings and discussion, and Carl Jung.
The Knowledge Exchange will offer all participants a free presentation, “Climate Change: The Earth Calls to Us,” from noon to 1 p.m. April 26. The session includes a PowerPoint presentation and lecture by Richard Treptow, an environmental services professional.
Noncredit courses are $73 for the first class and $28 for an additional class.
Classes are from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m. beginning April 5 through May 24.
For information or to register, contact Suzanne Patterson at (708) 534-4393.
Governors State University is at 1 University Parkway, University Park.
