The Selim Center for Lifelong Learning engages adult learners in quality educational opportunities that promote growth in body, mind and spirit. Now in its 46th year, the Center provides lifelong learning and intergenerational programming for people 40 and older. Please visit the individual program pages in the right column for more information on our upcoming lecture series and other events.  The slide show features images from our programming and Center outreach activities.  We also encourage you to view our Selim Center 40th Anniversary video on our "About the Center" page for an overview of the Center and its rich history at UST.

Selim Center Fall Programming

Like the rest of the world, we at the Selim Center are doing our best to continue to respond appropriately to the coronavirus global pandemic. We moved all of our programming to online delivery for spring and summer terms, and added sessions for the month of July. Student response has been extremely positive.

  • “Thank you so much for continuing to offer classes during the pandemic. They offer a meaningful diversion from our isolation.” (MM)
  • “Please provide more online classes. All have been an excellent experience. During the uncertainty of the pandemic and staying more at home, classes are so appreciated.” (AS)

Our fall schedule will be offered entirely online, as the virus continues to make it safer for you, our students, to learn from the safety of your homes. The fall schedule will launch on August 17 and you’ll find full details on the programming opportunities then.

The Center’s Facebook page features two initiatives, Monday Mission & Thursday Thoughts, designed to provide you with virtual lifelong learning opportunities and uplifting content, at no cost to you. We hope you’ll take advantage of these opportunities by “liking” our Facebook page (keyword search: University of St. Thomas Selim Center).

We remain committed to providing high quality learning opportunities for you, and we look forward to fulfilling your lifelong learning needs in order to Make Your Brain Happy!
