One American campus has followed my advice about creating academic programs for senior citizens. Stanford University now offers the Distinguished Careers Institute (DCI).
In partnership with the Stanford Center on Longevity, our yearlong program utilizes the wealth of innovation and knowledge at one of the world’s finest universities to create new and enriching professional and personal pathways for the next stage of life.buy zydena online buy zydena no prescription generic
Note some of the ways DCI addresses the particular needs of seniors:
To promote future longevity and success, each fellow has the opportunity for a personal health assessment that includes a health, exercise, and personal well-being plan. They also have access to career and transition planning along with access to placement firms.buy lexapro online buy lexapro no prescription generic
Finally, systematic data gathering provide insights to be shared among our community and advance our understanding of life-career transitions.buy stendra online buy stendra no prescription generic
It’s a small program – only 20 people – but could lead to even larger efforts, especially as America’s demographics trend older.

At Lane Community College, we have a Successful Aging Institute. It isn’t credit accruing, but it has a lot going on it. http://www.lanecc.edu/sai
That’s fascinating, Sandy. On the one hand it’s adult education aimed at seniors. On the other, training to support caregivers. Is that right?
Bryan, I’m not sure if this qualifies: Did you see this at Harvard for alums (who may or may not be senior citizens I suppose)? http://www.thecrimson.com/article/2015/1/27/harvardx-alumni-registration-review/
Also.. lifelong learning which focuses on area seniors is not unusual. For example University of South Florida has the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
http://www.usf.edu/continuing-education/olli/ but so far it’s on-campus only. Seniors in Florida can audit on-campus courses on a space-available basis….(http://www.arts.usf.edu/content/templates/?a=28&z=6) Now that I think about it, I don’t know what they are doing about enrollment in online courses! I’ll have to find out!
