Time: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
This daylong course is offered by the College of Continuing Education's LearningLife program.
Satisfying encore transitions may be marked by life-changing beginnings and endings, but they are bolstered by continuity. In Pathways to Post-Career Life, you will trace your journey, consider what's worth keeping and/orchanging for the future, and look to the routes (and detours!) you might encounter as you create pathways to the next stage of life.
This session is part of a four-session series. All sessions include refreshments, lunch, and resources. Take all four sessions ($500) or single sessions ($150). To learn more, visit Encore Transitions: Preparing for Post-Career Life.
