Offered over four weeks each June, this popular series provides an opportunity to challenge your mind, expand your understanding, refresh yourself with new ideas, join with friends old and new, and of course, have fun!
Participants meet on the UBC Point Grey campus for one to four individual weeks of stimulating lectures, lively discussion and shared enquiry. You select two morning courses from four options each week, and sign up for one week or more. The courses take place each morning, Monday to Friday.
Our 2014 Ageless Pursuits summer institutes are not currently open for registration. Check this site again in March 2014 for more information as it becomes available. You may also subscribe to our email list to receive program updates.
For our 55+ participants, we continue our long tradition of providing these lectures at a special subsidized rate this year, $125 per week. For those under 55, the fee is $150 per week. Fee includes free daily beverages and end-of-week celebrations. Space is limited and classes often fill quickly, so register early to avoid disappointment.
Classes are held in the Frederic Lasserre Building. The Frederic Lasserre Building is located near the intersection of Main Mall and Memorial Road, just north of the Koerner Library. As the lecture halls can be chilly, we suggest that you bring a sweater or light jacket. View the 2012 Ageless Pursuits campus map.
Daily pay parking is available at the Fraser Parkade, located at 1913 West Mall, adjacent to the Asian Centre and to the west of the Frederic Lasserre Building. For more information about summer parking rates, please visit UBC Parking and Access Control Services or call 604.822.6786.
The special subsidized rate for our 55+ participants is available through the support of the Vancouver Foundation and the Mary Helen Wood and Margaret Steven estates.
