The mission of Senior College is to provide high-quality educational opportunities for seniors. Courses cover a wide variety of topics in the humanities, sciences, and the arts and are taught by emeritus and current University of Iowa faculty members and others.
Senior College is run by a committee of retired UI faculty and staff members. The volunteer committee works in cooperation with the Association of Emeritus Faculty and the University of Iowa Retirees Association and contracts with the Center for Advancement to host this webpage and handle registration.
Nine different courses are being offered from August through early December. Some courses have more than the traditional four sessions, and some meet for less than two hours. The fee for each course is $30. Detailed information about each course and instructor can be found in the course catalog (PDF) below.
Two of this fall's classes will meet in person, and the others will be offered by videoconferencing, using Zoom. Information on Zoom can be found in the Zoom Guide (PDF) below.
Registration for fall 2021 courses will begin at 9:00 a.m. on August 9. No registrations will be accepted before that time.
