The income-wealth gap between the rich and the rest of the population has been growing since the 1980’s. In the upcoming New Adventures in Learning spring semester class, “The Growing Gap between the Rich and the Rest,” Paul Burgess, Professor Emeritus of Economics at Arizona State University, will deal with causes and consequences of this socioeconomic problem, as well as solutions for it.
New Adventures in Learning’s complete spring curriculum of 70 classes offers a variety of topics through lectures, roundtable discussions and field trips for the organization’s nearly 500 members. While some classes deal with key issues facing our society today, others provide information to broaden our knowledge in areas such as finance, health and science, or allow us to look back in time at historical moments. And some classes are just plain fun. To view the complete spring 2015 curriculum guide, go to www.newadventures.info.
The spring semester officially begins on Monday, February 2. However, most classes start later in the semester so there’s still time to register and experience the rewards of a learning adventure designed especially for older adults.
New Adventures in Learning is a membership organization affiliated with Chandler-Gilbert Community College that has been encouraging lifelong learning among its members since 1999. Membership is $50 per year and open to adults interested in taking advantage of a “no pressure” but challenging and rewarding educational opportunity in an easy-to-access and state-of-the-art facility located in Sun Lakes. All courses are non-credit, some meet only one time while others may meet weekly for several weeks.
