CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa will offer a series of educational opportunities through a new program called 'Lifelong University.' The program will offer non-credit courses. Although the program primarily will focus on retired residents, all adults will have the opportunity to take classes in a variety of subject areas. The courses will be taught by retired and current UNI faculty and staff.

'UNI has many experts on subjects ranging from technology, to Iowa history, foreign affairs, religions, travel and so much more,' said Stacey Christensen, community relations manager. 'UNI is a great resource in the Cedar Valley and we're excited to provide a service that supports our commitment to offering citizens a lifetime of opportunities.'

Courses and class format will vary to include four-week, half-day workshops, and lunch-n-learn programs. UNI plans to offer classes this fall. For more information and to be included on a mailing list, contact Stacey Christensen in the Office of University Marketing & Public Relations, 273-6728 or
