Meeman Center for Lifelong Learning is Rhodes’ commitment to learning as a lifelong process. Since its inception in 1944, the Center has been an integral part of the College, successfully engaging adults of the Mid-South in the liberal arts and sciences. Meeman Center promotes personal and professional development by extending Rhodes’ tradition of excellence in liberal education to individuals and businesses. All programs, courses, and trips offered by Meeman Center are described in detail in brochures available on request from the Meeman Center office or on the web.
Lifelong learning courses are offered in literature, art, languages, science, current events, history, religion, philosophy, and other areas of interest. Courses vary in length and run in the Fall (September through November) and Spring (January through May). The instructors are Rhodes faculty and invited experts, including Rhodes alumni. Online registration is available at meeman.rhodes.edu.
INSTITUTE ON THE PROFESSION OF LAW
Meeman Center offers an annual ethics seminar for attorneys to earn dual Continuing Legal Education (CLE) units. The seminar emphasizes national speakers, broad issues in law, and enlightened discussion and reflection. Rhodes faculty are a vital part of the Institute, both as planners and participants. The Institute is certified by the Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi Continuing Legal Education Commissions.
Meeman at Night
Special courses, lectures, workshops, conversations, and book signings take place during the academic year as tuition-free offerings open to the Rhodes community and to the public. Announcements of these events are posted on our website.
Meeman on the Road
In collaboration with the Alumni Relations Office, Meeman Center sends professors to speak at Rhodes Chapter events and to other locations where there are requests for faculty participation.
CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITS
Generally, Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are earned through any Meeman Center non-credit course. Continuing Legal Education (CLE) hours are earned through the Institute on the Profession of Law and certain other CLE Commission-certified continuing education courses. Both Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit and CEUs are earned in the Institute for Executive Leadership. Contact the Meeman Center office for more information.
