Open University
The popular lifelong learning program of The Shepherd’s Center of Richmond, Open University features volunteer instructors recruited from Richmond’s university and professional communities. Eight-week sessions are offered during the fall, winter and spring for $45 per session to members of The Shepherd’s Center of Richmond and $75 per session for non-members. Get complete details, see the Open University schedule and register here.

Lunch & Life
Free and open to the public, Lunch & Life is a four-week lecture series held in the fall, winter and spring. Normally presented in partnership with St. Mary Catholic Church, Lunch & Life is online via Zoom until further notice. Members of The Shepherd’s Center of Richmond and current students of Open University are automatically registered for Lunch & Life. If you are interested in attending Lunch & Life, but are not a TSCOR member or an Open University student, registration is required. See the Lunch & Life schedule and register here.

Local one-day trips and overnight tours are open to members of The Shepherd’s Center of Richmond and the general public (bring your friends!). TSCOR travelers have enjoyed plays at Wolf Trap, sight-seeing in New Bern, touring historic Richmond, and recently, culinary tours of locally trending eateries. Due to COVID-19, the travel program is temporarily suspended. We look forward to resuming activities as soon as it is safe to do so. See travel here.
