Community Education Series 2017-18

The Community Education Series engages and educates our community about topics related to the science of learning and learning styles. The series provides practical resources and information that are both grounded in research and accessible to all audiences.  All events take place at The Hill Center from 6:30-8pm unless otherwise noted.


These programs are open to the community and free of charge thanks to the generous support of Morris Commercial of Chapel Hill, NC in honor of Scott Morris '01.
