Communiversity enriches lives and enhances skill sets

The University of Cincinnati's Communiversity equips adults with the tools to achieve their lifelong learning goals

It's as true today as it was in 1949, when the University of Cincinnati first began offering continuing education to adults: the benefits of lifelong learning are many. That's why UC's Communiversity enrollment is at an all-time high. 

Class descriptions from the University of Cincinnati's Evening College from 1949. "Short Term Courses: Seven sharply focused short-term courses have been arranged for busy men and women who do not have time to give to semester-length subjects and outside study." Clases include "How to Conduct a Meeting," "Business Management Institute," and "Youth and Marriage," with simple line drawings next to the class descrptions. Fees for the classes ranged from $6.50 to $8.50.

Learning new skills and hobbies isn't just a fun way to occupy your free time; becoming a lifelong learner has immense potential to enrich your life. The more you know, the more opportunity there is for advancement in the future, both in your career and personal life.
