Oakmont Lifelong Learning now local



Oakmont’s Lifelong Learning program will take a new direction this year, presenting its own classes and events as Sonoma State University (SSU) withdraws its support after an 11-year affiliation.

“The Lifelong Learning Committee will be bringing you classes, lectures and concert series,” Chairman Kay Wittes told a March 14 preview for SSU’s final class offerings, which started in April.

“While surprised at their decision, we see this as an incredible opportunity for us here,” Wittes said. “Lifelong learning here remains alive and well.”

Oakmont’s new events will include a five-concert series starting with the Vintage Grass Bluegrass Quartet on May 24 and running through Sept. 22. Future classes in Oakmont will be announced later.

Carin Jacobs, director of the Osher Lifelong Learning program at SSU, told the Oakmont audience that the program “has received a lot of pressure to shift its emphasis” by growing its presence on the Rohnert Park campus and to offer classes at a more central Sonoma County site. “Something in downtown Santa Rosa made sense geographically,” she said.

“We feel confident that the Oakmont Lifelong Learning board has both the wherewithal and the desire to continue quality programming here for the residents of Oakmont,” Jacobs said.
