Chautauqua New Orleans

The New Orleans Lyceum is a local non-profit educational outreach group that seeks to build communities of inquiry through conversation and experience. The purpose of this partnership is to establish a framework of cooperation and understanding between the Lyceum and Loyola to develop six-week long non-credit seminars for local community members over the age of 50 through a changing menu of topics. The seminars will be held on Loyola's campus based on available space and willing emeritus faculty are encouraged to participate as seminar instructors. This program serves to support the university's mission and committment to life-long learning and life-long service.
