The program year consists of 3 six week sessions: Fall, Winter, and Spring. Annual membership fee of $310 covers participation in two seminars, and 12 lectures per each of three six-week sessions. These sessions are held at the Thompson Conference Center on the UT campus.

The dates of the 2015-2016 program sessions are:

  • Fall Session     September 29 - November 5, 2015

  • The goal is to provide its members, who reflect a very wide range of professional and life experiences, with continuing intellectual growth in a campus environment.

    Activities outside the formal program, such as field trips and end of session dinners, provide social interaction and a broader field of experience.
