The University of Kansas and Washburn University have signed an agreement to expand a KU adult education program. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at KU will now offer classes in Topeka on the Washburn campus. The classes are open to anyone, but they’re aimed at people age 50 or older. Washburn President Jerry Farley and KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little signed the agreement today (WED).
Courses offered in the program range from history and political science to wine tasting. One of the new classes will focus on the history of presidential elections. KU already has satellite programs offering classes in the Manhattan, Hutchinson and Kansas City areas.
