IMPORTANT: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and our desire for safety, West Liberty University is suspending all in-seat classes at this time. This includes Community University classes at the Highlands Center. We regret the inconvenience to our students. We have issued a statement here that further details the changing nature of this pandemic and our response. Thank you.
The Community University at West Liberty offers stimulating learning opportunities to people age 55 and older. The Community University is an organization with volunteer presenters that engages older adults as learners. Community University programs are shaped by presenters’ and learners’ interests and include study topics from the arts and literature, sciences and technology, history, religion, business and commerce, current events – and other suggested topics (excluding “arts and crafts” activities).
The Community University at West Liberty offers two terms annually: a spring term and fall term. Classes are held at the West Liberty University Highlands Center, unless otherwise noted.
