Summer Courses are here!  Summertime is special for WISE in that it is outside the usual Fall and Spring academic calendar year that we follow.  This allows us to offer courses during the summertime to both people who are WISE members and to those who are not yet members. This means that everyone pays the registration fee for each course.  Please note that during the summer we have some courses that are 5 classes long, some that are 3 or 4 classes long, and several 1 class courses (Summer Shorts!). Registration is open, and most courses start the last week of May or the first week of June, so now is the time to be encouraging your friends, family, neighbors, and their friends to join us in a summer engaging courses.

       The Summer 2024 Catalog is available now!
