Posted: August 30, 2021

The Holden University Center of Lakeland Community College has added Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) to its list of partner schools. CWRU’s Siegal Lifelong Learning Program will join 11 other partner colleges and universities offering area residents educational opportunities through Lakeland’s Holden University Center.

CWRU’s Siegal Lifelong Learning Program connects the academic world to the wider community through innovative and engaging programming. Adults of all ages pursue their love of learning by participating in courses and lectures provided by CWRU faculty, renowned scholars, and local subject-area experts.

Lakeland’s Holden University Center offers a community connection and a campus close to home. Students enrolled in courses or lectures offered by partnering institutions, both in-person or remotely, have access to state-of-the-art facilities on the Lakeland campus. The Holden University Center provides a convenient way for area residents to pursue lifelong learning opportunities right here in Lake County.

“This partnership will allow Lakeland to offer more high quality, noncredit learning opportunities to area residents,” said Laura Barnard, executive vice president and provost of Lakeland. “It complements our current professional development courses in healthcare, computers and technology, business and management, and human services.”

CWRU’s Siegal Lifelong Learning Program offers a vast array of courses and lectures on topics including art, history, politics, science, religion, literature and more. The program also includes an 11-week Senior Scholars program. Siegal Lifelong Learning offers both online and in-person programming. In-person courses and lectures are held at CWRU main campus in University Circle, Siegal’s Beachwood facility, in locations throughout Northeast Ohio and now Lakeland’s Holden University Center in Kirtland.

“Case Western Reserve University is excited to launch a partnership with Lakeland Community College to bring an array of courses to adults in Lake County. Through this collaboration, we are able to build on the strengths and resources of each of our organizations to provide high quality learning opportunities in a broader geographic range,” said Brian Amkraut, executive director, Siegal Lifelong Learning, CWRU.

Courses and lectures are currently available remotely. Beginning October 2021, courses will be available in-person at Lakeland’s Holden University Center.
