The Commonwealth Society

The Commonwealth Society, a program for adults of all ages, features short courses, lecture series and travel opportunities.

United by common interest, The Commonwealth Society connects community learners to the resources of Virginia Commonwealth University. Through our courses and activities, we promote the connection between learning and life. Since becoming part of the esteemed VCU School of the Arts, we continue to tap into tremendous creative resources that have enhanced our support of this important learning-life connection.

You will see new courses by returning faculty, new courses by new faculty and our on-going opportunities for members such as Book Group, Brown Bag Lunches and travel opportunities. 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.

Please join us for the spring sessions of The Commonwealth Society. We promise an exciting and enriching learning experience.

Join our mailing list so you can be kept up-to-date on upcoming classes and programs.
