The Alumnae of Northwestern University’s Continuing Education program, open to the community, is being conducted in person at Norris Center and live-streamed via Zoom. The CE program features non-credit courses taught by University faculty. All proceeds are given back to the University in the form of scholarships, fellowships, grants, an endowed professorship, and more.
Spring quarter courses:
American Music, taught by Drew Davies, associate professor, Musicology
Social Psychology: The Study of How the Social Environment Shapes Individual Minds, taught by Wendi Gardner, associate professor, Psychology
Dilemmas of American Power, taught by Peter Slevin, professor, Journalism
Courses will be taught for nine weeks on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning March 28. Enrolled students will also have access to the recordings of each week’s lectures for six days following the lecture.
Students can enroll online through Norris Box Office, nbo.universitytickets.com. Profiles of the faculty speakers and additional information about the courses are available on The Alumnae website, nualumnae.org.
“We are excited that students can again join us as we begin the 54th year of Alumnae Continuing Education, offering an in person and/or online version of our long-running series of engaging and enriching courses featuring Northwestern professors,” said Debby Hudson and Sheila Gideon, chairs of The Alumnae’s Continuing Education committee.
The Alumnae of Northwestern is an all-volunteer organization of women that raises funds for a wide range of projects to benefit the university and showcases the university’s academic resources with the community through its Continuing Education program. Founded in 1916, The Alumnae has given more than $9.5 million to the university in the form of grants, fellowships, scholarships, and an endowed professorship, as well as funding special University projects and summer internships.
