Spring 2010 Back-to-School Kickoff

FREE!

Life is Definitely NOT Over at 65!
Engaging the “Third and Fourth Age” - Older Adults in Higher Education

Dr. Wright L. Lassiter

Chancellor, Dallas County Community College District
The skyrocketing growth of the older adult population in the United States is forcing society to rethink this cohort’s role in the nation’s future. In this talk the Chancellor will remind the attendees of the four ages of our lives – Preparation, Achievement, Fulfillment and Completion – with a focus on the ages of Fulfillment and Completion – the two ages relating to the Richland College Emeritus Program. The Third Age begins as advancement becomes less important; this is the age of fulfillment. “The best is yet to be!” Completion is the last stage of life and represents the Fourth Age. Dr. Lassiter will provide insight about the population of adult Americans aged 65 and older and how higher education can effectively serve them.

Includes coffee, muffins, your new Spring 2010 booklet, and an overview of our Emeritus fall classes. Help us grow - invite friends to come along with you. Call 972-238-6972 or 972-238-6958 to reserve your space for this FREE event.

Our mission is to provide affordable quality learning activities and volunteer opportunities that enable individuals 50 and over to stay intellectually challenged and enriched, physically fit and socially connected.

To address deteriorating air quality, we are also refining the right mix of methods like transit and passenger rail in our transportation portfolio. Congestion in the cities and safety and connectivity in rural areas challenge our traditional approaches and call for further innovations. Presenter: State Senator John Carona

Sept 30 Banned Books Intellectual freedom can exist only where two essential conditions are met: first, that all individuals have the right to hold any belief on any subject and to convey their ideas in any form they deem appropriate; second, that society makes an equal commitment to the right of unrestricted access to information and ideas regardless of the communication medium used, the content of the work, and the viewpoints of both the author and receiver of information. Lou Wetherbee will give a lively and informal illustrated presentation on the fascinating topic of “banned” books. Presenter: Lou Wetherbee, library management consultant Oct 7 Italian Cinema: From the realist style of observation to symbolism. The lecture will examine the evolution of Italian Cinema from the neo-realist cinematic approach (1940s) and its fundamental concern with society of the early masters -Rossellini, De Sica, Visconti- to a cinema of social and psychological questions. The evolution from films of drama to films addressing the intellect rather than emotions will be given depth and perspective by relating it to Italian culture, politics and society. Presenter: Dr. Enzo De Nardo, Honorary Vice Counsel of Italy and SMU professor Enrichment II (Series) Non-credit Wed 1:30-3:00 Oct 14-Nov 18 (6sessions) *Rm R019 Course No. 581133 Fee $20 (Fee covers all 6 sessions; attend as many or as few as you choose.) *PLEASE NOTE: ON OCTOBER 14 THE ENRICHMENT CLASS WILL BE IN C140 – NOT LECROY.

You’ll come to know the less than obvious effects of the brain on behavior with family, friends and professionals upon whom you rely.

You’ll come to know the less than obvious effects of the brain on behavior with family, friends and professionals upon whom you rely.

This presentation is an enactment of a fictional press conference called by Lee. Arlene Colbert portrays the elderly, though still feisty, Lee who only wants to be left alone but who doggedly responds to reporters – one more time.
