Intellectual & Personal Growth
The Irvine Valley College Emeritus Institute program affirms the importance of intellectual activity, critical thinking, and creative expressions for older adults. The curriculum challenges participants to formulate relationships between past experiences and new ideas, and to keep current in all academic areas. Courses are developed to stimulate participants’ intellectual and personal growth and to benefit their daily lives – personally, socially, culturally, economically, and environmentally. While these courses meet the college’s academic standards, they are not degree-applicable.
