Rutgers Hosts Lifelong Learning Day Friday Oct. 14
National event debuts in Rutgers Student Center in New Brunswick
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – The Rutgers Division of Continuing Studies will host the university’s first-ever Lifelong Learning Day celebration on campus Friday, October 14, 2016.
The event will feature activities at Rutgers Student Center on College Avenue Campus in New Brunswick from 11 a.m. -2 p.m. Rutgers students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend. Atttendees are welcome to write an answer to the question “What’s the greatest thing you ever learned?” on a chalkboard; take and share a “selfie” photo with cutouts of famed learners Albert Einstein, Marie Curie and Frederick Douglass; and take part in a video shoot answering “What do you want to learn next?”
“Lifelong learning is a critical and increasingly valuable skill in today’s economy. Continuing education, both formal and informal, delivers many benefits for individual learners, the community at large and for the workplace,” said Richard J. Novak, vice president of continuing studies and distance learning at Rutgers.
“Whether you are just letting your curiosity point you in new directions, looking to earn a bachelor’s degree many years after completing high school, or seeking professional courses to help advance your career, Rutgers’ continuing education programs provide an astonishing variety of options for everyone from elementary school students to state policymakers,” said Novak.
