USC Aiken renews partnership with the Center for Lifelong Learning to provide educational opportunities for Aiken County adult learners

The University of South Carolina Aiken has renewed its commitment to providing educational opportunities for adults in Aiken County through a continuing partnership with the Center for Lifelong Learning.

USC Aiken Chancellor Daniel Heimmermann and CLL President Raleigh Daniel participated in a signing ceremony on Feb. 10 detailing USC Aiken's efforts to continue teachings through the CLL. "An integral part of our effort is to serve the community," Heimmermann said.

"As a vital program associated with the University, CLL provides instruction in general interest classes and events for the Aiken community," said Paul Crook, executive director of the Etherredge Center and External Programs at USCA. Crook said the university, the Office of External Programs, the Office of the Provost, and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Finance have worked to detail responsibilities in the partnership with the CLL.

USC Aiken is the only institution in the Central Savannah River Area to have a program such as the CLL. "If you go to Augusta or Columbia, there's no program like this," Daniel explained. "That's speaks highly to what the university has done."

Daniel added that the signing ceremony will mean longevity for the program and countless educational opportunities for students and the community.

CLL offers general interest courses such as history, music, gardening, cooking, art, technology, and more. There is a membership fee of $35 per semester. You must be a member to register for classes.
