Community Partnerships for Lifelong Learning

UFV is committed to student access. In our classrooms, labs, shops, and seminars, a diverse range of people unite — people who bring a vast breadth of education, life, and work experiences to share. We offer flexible, affordable learning programs to accommodate virtually any schedule, even those of busy parents, active seniors, and mid-career professionals. We also commend and support the efforts of community organizations that bring people together in the spirit of lifelong learning. 

Following please find information about the Abbotsford Learning Plus Society, Mission Lifetime Learning Centre Society, and the ElderCollege in Chilliwack. By promoting their course offerings, we hope to help them deliver their message of access and inclusion to an even broader audience.
