Commitment to advancing healthy aging:
Fitchburg State currently administers a program called Adult Learning in the Fitchburg Area (ALFA). Our programming is geared toward senior citizens in over 13 surrounding communities. We offer courses, lectures, and trips. The program is co-administered by a 20 member board of local senior citizens. We are celebrating our 15th year of programming. We are also embarking upon programming that is aimed at creating inter-generational experiences between our elders and undergraduate students. ALFA helps our seniors to feel less isolated and connected to a vibrant community of learners.
