Reasons to Stay Involved with Life-long Learning Opportunities at USD!
USD’s University of the Third adheres to the same guidelines as main campus and provides the following values in its delivery of life-long learning programs:
Stimulate Intellectual Curiosity – Each session provides attendees the opportunity to dialogue and interact with presenters that attendees might not have the opportunity to see outside of the University.
Physical Acuteness – Keeping mind and body stimulated is an on-going exercise, and one that must keep moving. During USD’s U3A sessions we do just that! Attendees have the option of taking a Tai-Chi exercise, beginning/intermediate computers class or Spanish workshop each morning and then engage in lively presentations, dialogues and interactions with experts from a variety of industries.
Spiritual Connections – U3A attendees come from all religious backgrounds and are curious to learn more about various religions and spiritual insights. Although USD is a Catholic University, diversity among religious backgrounds are accepted and encouraged. Religion and theology topics are often included in each season's calendar.
Emotional Connections - U3A is not only a venue to come for your life-learning needs, but a place to connect and re-connect with new and old friends, and engage in interesting activities and opportunities that bring together the U3A friendship community.
Social Justice – U3A participates fully to align itself with the ChangeMaker intentions of main campus through community service opportunities and introduction of ChangeMaker experts from the San Diego community through dynamic and inspiring presentations.
Cultural Development -An introduction of various cultural opportunities through lectures and field trips takes place each session so that all attendees have an introduction to develop an appreciation for cultures and cultural groups typically visited outside their communities.
