NSU Lifelong Learning Institute and Aventura Arts & Cultural Center launch new speaker series

Posted Monday, Sep 24th, 2018

 The Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) will launch a new partnership through the City of Aventura with the Aventura Arts and Cultural Center starting with a new lecture series. The first presentation, “A Postmortem of the 2018 Midterm Elections” by NSU Professor of History and Political Science Charles Zelden, Ph.D., takes place November 13 at 7:30 p.m. The event is free, but reservations are required and can be made through the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center.

Collaborating with the City of Aventura was the brainchild of Dr. George L. Hanbury II, President & CEO of Nova Southeastern University.

“NSU’s Lifelong Learning Institute has made tremendous strides in its work, giving an edge to South Florida adults looking to stay mentally sharp and engaged in current events,” said Hanbury. “This partnership is a win for both Nova Southeastern University and the City of Aventura, and shows how NSU continues to live by its core values. It helps fulfill our goal to be an educational force of nature in South Florida.”

The series continues on January 29, 2019 with “The Long Roots of Racism and the American Civil Rights Revolution of the 20th Century,” by Vincent Toscano, Ph.D. February 26 will feature Armando Droulers’ “Affairs of the Heart: Picasso’s Women.” The series will wind up on March 26 with NSU’s Missy Dore, Ed.D. presenting “Sharks, Turtles, and Corals: Oh My! 50 Years of Marine Science in South Florida.”
