    Lifelong Learning Connection

    Alumnae, do you miss the intellectual life of St. Kate’s, delving into new ideas with your classmates and favorite professors? Rediscover it through Lifelong Learning Connection, a series of online presentations featuring St. Kate's faculty and other special guests.

    Each program is one hour, with 30-40 minutes of presentation followed by a period of questions and answers. Because these events are by phone and/or online, you can participate wherever you happen to be!

    The 2016-17 series is complete, and more programs are in the works for the upcoming year. At your convenience, view video from any of the 2016-17 programs at the links below.
