|Stockton Institute for Continued Learning (SICL)|
What is the Stockton Institute for Continued Learning?
SICL is a member-run organization for older adults offering learning experiences in an informal setting. It is a partnership between San Joaquin Delta College and adults in our community. There are no textbooks to buy, no tests to take, no credits to earn; you just a desire to learn and to experience new things.
Who joins SICL?
Membership is made up of persons from all walks of life -- concerned citizens who are still curious and have the time and desire to pursue lifelong learning. Our members say SICL classes and tours stimulate their curiosity and keep their brains active and alert.
How do I join SICL?
SICL registration for fall 2012 classes will be held on Saturday, August 25 at 10:00 a.m. in Upper Danner Hall, and spring registration occurs in January, but you may join anytime. Membership in SICL is open to all older adults in the San Joaquin Delta College community. A $25 per semester fee entitles you to attend most of the SICL classes. Fall classes begin during the week of September 4, 2012 and end by November 16. We hope you will join today!
What subjects do the members enjoy?
Fall SICL classes will include: painting, bridge, music, financial planning, printmaking, stained glass, creative writing, scrapbooking, digital photo, beginning computer, Tai Chi, religious traditions, cooking, various games, a speaker series, and tours. The curriculum is developed each semester according to the suggestions of the members and the availability of volunteer instructors.
Where and when do classes meet?
SICL classes meet on the San Joaquin Delta College campus Monday through Friday mornings and afternoons during the fall and spring semesters. As a member, you may attend as many or as few programs as you wish on a first-come, first-served basis.
What tours are available?
Various tours to interesting nearby locations are offered each semester. Signups may be made at registration, or after classes start if space is still available. Further information is available in Holt 123.
How may I become involved in the organization?
SICL has a Board of Directors who are elected by the membership, with committees who work to make this a thriving and enjoyable learning experience. SICL welcomes and encourages your active participation.
Our program is part of 450 other worldwide Learning in Retirement programs on college campuses across the nation and a member of the Association of Learning in Retirement Organization in the West (ALIROW). SICL is an activity of the Older Adult Council of the San Joaquin Delta College Foundation.
