The Nova Southeastern University (NSU) Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) recently celebrated its 40th anniversary at the Savor Cinema in Fort Lauderdale. LLI members, staff, faculty and community supporters came together for a special live-streamed program followed by a reception in the Savor Cinema courtyard. The LLI is part of the NSU Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine and was created by the late Dr. Abraham Fischler as part of his vision of a university meeting the needs of people from birth (the Mailman Segal Center Family Center Preschool) through older adulthood (the Lifelong Learning Institute). In attendance was Shirley Fischler, widow of Dr. Abraham Fischler.
The live-streamed program featured a lecture by two emeritus NSU professors, Steven Alford, Ph.D. and Suzanne Ferriss, Ph.D. Their topic was “Concepts of the Natural,” which examined several historical meanings of the term “nature”: as a physical environment, as distinguishable from “civilization,” and as a subject in the pastoral and Romantic arts.
The event was coordinated through the efforts of the LLI volunteer Member’s Advisory Committee (MAC), chaired by Dr. Stuart Farber, M.D. Event coordinators were MAC members Nancy Green and Ricki Franklin.
The Savor Cinema and the NSU Lifelong Learning Institute are collaborative partners, sharing educational resources and co-planning events together.
NSU’s Lifelong Learning Institute runs programs in Aventura at the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center on Mondays from 10-11:30 a.m. For more information and class schedules, visit www.nova.edu /lilfelonglearning, call 954-262-8471 or email email@example.com.
