The Purpose of U3A
- Encourage further learning by listening, understanding, contributing, researching and participating in discussion and relevant excursions about new topics.
- Tap the great reservoir of knowledge, skills and experience of retired men and women.
- Provide a venue for the meeting together of like minded people to learn, contribute and to make new friends in their local community.
“Those who teach shall also learn. Those who learn shall also teach” Peter Laslett – U3A Cambridge, 1981
This is particularly true of U3A which calls us to active learning, often beyond our comfort zone. This provides the zest and excitement of research and discovery about topics which, in our busy working lives, were completely inaccessible to us.
