The Commonwealth Society features short courses, lecture series and travel opportunities.
VCU invites interested adults of all ages in the Richmond area to become members of The Commonwealth Society.
Each semester the society offers a series of exciting topics providing a unique educational experience. These college-level courses offer adults the opportunity to learn and develop interests without college-level stress.
You will see new courses by returning faculty members, new courses by new faculty and our on-going opportunities for members, such as Book Group, Brown Bag Lunches and travel opportunities, including an architectural and historical trip to Northern Europe. Members will also receive notification about other lectures, seminars and performances on the VCU campuses or sponsored by various VCU and School of the Arts departments.
