SBCC Center for Lifelong Learning Students Discover Passions in Welcoming Community Atmosphere

July 1, 2015 We all know the benefits of keeping an active mind. The more mentally active a person is throughout their life, the healthier they will be both mentally and physically. SBCC’s Center for Lifelong Learning provides opportunities for continued education in a relaxed setting so individuals can discover passions in a welcoming community atmosphere. “I like to think of the Center for Lifelong Learning as the community’s center,” said Executive Director Andy Harper. “We are a place where you can find community – where you can learn for the love of learning while making great friends along the way.” Adult Education was founded in Santa Barbara in 1918 to provide adult immigrants instruction in English and citizenship preparation. Later, personal enrichment, career preparation, and college preparation programs were added to the curriculum. The Center for Lifelong Learning has today become a community gem offering hundreds of classes in five main categories including Arts, Crafts, and Performance; Body, Mind, and Spirit; Events, Language, and Photo; Home and Family; and Nature, Science, and Recreation. “The CLL has really interwoven itself into the fabric of people’s lives,” said Andy. “We like to think of ourselves as a cultural, educational, and intellectual hub.” Summer session has already begun, with students choosing from over 175 classes, 21 of which offered for the first time. The CLL typically provides 15 to 20 percent new classes every term, presenting a sprinkling of new options among the perennial favorites. This summer will be particularly interesting because the CLL will be offering more outdoor classes than usual including hiking, art on the beach, and outdoor cooking....
