Lifelong Learning for the fun of it.
No tests, no papers, and no grades.

Do you enjoy teaching adults who love to learn?

Do you have an interest in topics that you’d like to share with your friends and neighbors? If so, we invite you to become a member of the Coastal Senior College faculty and our learning community of over 400 members. Our mission is to enrich the lives of seniors through the joy of lifelong learning. CSC is one of 17 members in the Maine Senior College Network (maineseniorcollege.org).

Our 30 plus volunteer faculty include academics, professionals and knowledgeable instructors who graciously teach classes in the liberal arts and sciences, healthy living and outdoor and hands-on learning to those 50 and older in Lincoln and Knox counties. We invite you to discuss teaching opportunities by contacting the curriculum committee co-chair, Byron Stuhlman, bstuhl@tidewater.net.
