We are a life-long learning community offering cultural and educational enrichment. Following in the footsteps of the historical Lyceum and Chautauqua, we are a volunteer effort, drawing on the resources and life experiences of our members to offer classes, programs, discussion groups, and events throughout the city. Topics include, but are not limited to, philosophy, literature, history, science, the environment, the arts, and the culture of New Orleans.

Most activities are free or limited to the cost of learning materials, such as books or printing costs or the requirements of the activity’s venue. There are no prerequisites, educational or otherwise, except for an open, inquiring mind, for participants to pursue intellectual and cultural enrichment.
