A collegial community of lifelong learners over the age of 50, Renaissance Institute, abounds with opportunities to express your creativity, engage in intellectual pursuits and explore new ideas while building enriching camaraderie.
Renaissance members are writers, painters, historians, teachers, scientists, film buffs, musicians, dancers, poets, bankers, realtors, lawyers, sports fans, nurses and more! Most are retired, many are grandparents, and all have fascinating life experiences to share.
Renaissance’s non credit classes are designed and led by members, and local professionals. Enjoy a mix of on campus and Zoom based selections on Tuesdays and Thursdays each spring and fall semester. Check in for special lectures and social events, clubs, and our unique Summer and Winter in the City Programs for continuing enrichment and fun when classes are out of session.
The Renaissance Curriculum covers a wide range of interests including: art, history, science, literature, music, philosophy, politics, public affairs, creative writing, drawing and painting, film, languages, qi gong, and yoga.
Renaissance instructors come from all walks - some experienced educators, others stepping up to share a passion, avocation or a special talent in art, music or writing. RI has a long tradition of member instructors who volunteer to teach a class. Also, we have non-member instructors who we actively recruit and to whom we offer compensation!
