Nationally, many universities, especially those located in areas that attract older adults, offer opportunities for members of the community to engage in lifelong learning.

The community of Shepherdstown hosts a significant population of retirees who attend Shepherd events and support the university with their volunteer efforts. Several years ago, Shepherd officials were contacted by a group called Shepherdstown Area Independent Living (S.A.I.L.) about offering a lifelong learning program similar to those in place at other universities across the country. We worked with S.A.I.L. and an advisory committee comprised of faculty, staff, and members of the community to conduct a feasibility study that was widely reported on in local media. Not surprisingly, we found significant interest in the community for this type of program, which would offer up to eight classes over the course of six weeks in fall and six weeks in spring.
