About WISE

WISE classroom discussionThe Worcester Institute for Senior Education (WISE) at Assumption College is a member-directed organization created in 1993 to provide lifelong learning opportunities for older adults.

Our vision is to be a learning community that offers older adults intellectual stimulation, socialization, personal growth and opportunities for service. Through the peer learning concept, members share their knowledge and experience with each other by creating, coordinating, and participating in courses. All courses are held at convenient times at locations on the Assumption College campus and at venues in the area. No tests or grades required!
