In January 1997, Senior College at Eckerd College was developed to provide affordable, engaging non-credit courses and travel programs for adults in the Tampa Bay area.

In 2005, the Bernard Osher Foundation recognized Eckerd College’s Senior program as an “exemplary lifelong learning program” and provided a generous grant for support.

The Bernard Osher Foundation currently supports 123 lifelong learning programs at college and universities across the U.S
