Benefits of Teaching at Senior University
Teaching at Senior University provides many benefits not only for students but for instructors as well. Becoming an instructor allows anyone who is passionate about lifelong learning to go beyond attending classes and lectures. In addition, volunteering as an instructor helps us to add more diversity and terms to our class offerings.
Instructors are not compensated but receive a free one-year membership from date of the first class taught and an honorarium. They may also take other Senior University courses without paying a registration fee during their teaching term.
