LINCOLN TOWERS UNIVERSITY

  Organized by Lois Spatz and Lila Belanoff, Lincoln Towers University has expanded its ambitious
  continuing education program. So many Lincoln Towers residents who are qualified professionals
  have volunteered to teach in our program that we are able to offer a variety of short courses on
  different days and at different times. We charge a small registration fee, which covers materials
  and room setup. This fee is $10 for regular, multi-session courses, payable at the first meeting.
  For single lecture Pop-up courses, a registration fee of $5 is collected at the door. Checks should
  be made out to Project Open.

Return to this site for information on new classes and Instructors. Watch for the flyer in your building for each class a month
before it meets. Unless the class is a single session Pop-up taking place in the 185 WEA community room, you must enroll with the
Lincoln Towers University registrar, Eleanora von Dehsen, at 212-875-0654 or email esvd222[at]rcn.com, leaving name, phone number,
and course name. We have also facilitated the organization of discussion groups. Contact the designated convener for information
and registration.
