Shepherd University to gauge interest in programs for seniors

March 23, 2011

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — Shepherd University is evaluating community interest in the establishment of a Lifelong Learning program for retirees, semi-retirees, and seniors. An advisory committee, appointed by Shepherd University President Suzanne Shipley, is developing the non-credit program to be rolled out in fall 2011.

The committee's first action is to survey Shepherdstown and the surrounding communities to access interest, needs, and the desired program structure. The full survey is being distributed through community service groups, churches, libraries, stores, and other public places throughout Shepherdstown, Charles Town, and Martinsburg for anyone wishing to participate. An interactive survey is available on Shepherd's homepage at www.shepherd.edu.

The Lifelong Learning committee is co-chaired by Dr. Diane Melby, vice president for advancement and Dr. Richard Helldobler, vice president for academic affairs. Members of the committee include professors Dr. Heidi Dobish and Dr. Mark McCoy and community members Jack Young, Lisa Younis, Lisa Oswald, Mary Sue Eldridge, Art Wineburg, and Sue Kennedy. For more information about the Lifelong Learning program at Shepherd, contact Diane Melby at 304-876-5378 or dmelby@shepherd.edu.
