Lifelong Learning at Wofford began in 2015 as an initiative started by Charlie Gray to expand the college’s commitment to fostering lifelong learning. Located in downtown Spartanburg, Lifelong Learning at Wofford offers eight and four-week terms that include interactive courses and one-time workshops or events year-round. Local experts and Wofford faculty teach a wide range of topics, including history, religion, literature, science, cooking, writing, pop culture, physical fitness and current events.

Lifelong Learning at Wofford is fortunate to have access to Central United Methodist Church, located a few blocks south of Wofford, which has a long-standing relationship with the college. Most classes are held at CUMC, giving members plenty of space to interact with participants and instructors. Parking is also available, which makes getting to class easy.

Until the pandemic is contained, our program has transitioned to mostly online courses. We continue to provide enriching online learning opportunities and find new ways to bring our passionate learning community together with virtual wine tastings, book and movie shares, restaurant tours, historic tours and many other creative gatherings.

Members of Lifelong Learning at Wofford enjoy many benefits beyond access to dozens and dozens of classes throughout the year. Members also receive invitations and special pricing on Wofford cultural and sporting events, access to the campus dining halls and library, weekly eblasts and term newsletters along with the innumerable ways to meet and interact with other energetic and enthusiastic lifelong learners.
