The Renaissance Institute of Notre Dame of Maryland University celebrated 25 years of life-long learning for adults age 50+ on Sunday, May 18, 2014.
Founded in 1989 by NDMU's Sr. Kathleen Feeley, community members sign up to take Renaissance Institute courses for the pure pleasure of learning! Each year more than 100 noncredit courses, workshops and studio opportunities are designed and led by Renaissance members in two 13-week semesters. Working with a campus-based director, the members plan, lead and enroll in a series of courses held on Tuesdays and Thursdays each spring and fall semester.
The success of the program rests on member participation. Members create the curriculum, design and lead courses and serve on one or more committees. Renaissance members are committed to active involvement and informed discussion.
