WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
Elderwise is a nonprofit, independent, lifelong learning organization dedicated to offering continuing education
to learners of all ages. Our mission is to provide a broad spectrum of classes and a significant range of topics
to meet the needs and interests of a wide variety of individuals. Learning, educational enjoyment, and
personal growth are the fundamental goals of every Elderwise program. We strive to provide an experience
that values both intellectual and social interaction.
Elderwise was established in 1992 through the efforts of Eastern Michigan University representatives and a group of nonacademic enthusiasts committed to developing continuing education programs. Today, Elderwise is member driven in organization, leadership, participation, financial support, and program development.
