AlumniU

In Fall 2016, the Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies and Alumni Relations and Development launched AlumniU, a space for alumni to continue the rich intellectual inquiry that so much characterized their university experience long after they have left the University. AlumniU offers alumni a new way to learn, and UChicago faculty a new way to teach.

There are two main kinds of learning opportunities on AlumniU. The first is a six week online class taught by a member of the UChicago faculty. These are highly discussion focused, and the direction they take can be informed by alumni and their interests. The second, "Connecting the Curious," is a three week seminar in which a faculty member presents on his or her research and responds to questions from alumni.

If you are a faculty member who is interested in developing an offering on AlumniU, or would just like more information, contact alumniu@uchicago.edu.
