:: UT LAMP Program Description


UT LAMP™ (Learning Activities for Mature People) welcomes all senior adults who want to engage in lifelong learning in a group setting with their peers. With up to 500 members from every profession and life path, LAMP offers a lively forum where our diverse members meet to share interests and cultivate new friendships while expanding their knowledge.

UT LAMP™ lectures and seminars are presented during three, six-week sessions in the fall, winter, and spring. Two, one-hour lectures followed by a 15-minute moderated Q&A session are presented on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Seminars, six related one-hour lectures per term, are presented on Tuesday afternoons. No advance sign-up is required for any particular lecture or seminar. Members may choose to attend as many or as few lectures as their interests and schedules allow.

In addition, UT LAMP™ offers members the opportunity to socialize through activities such as book and discussion groups, In-Town Tours, Out-of-Town Tours, and other social activities throughout the year. To ensure the program’s continuing success, UT LAMP™ members are encouraged to donate their talents and time performing executive, administrative, and technical activities.
