University Without Walls

DOROT’s University Without Walls (UWW) program offers hundreds of teleconference programs, appealing to a wide range of interests – all over the telephone. Participants from New York and across the country can choose from ever-changing topics and perennial favorites such as Museum Discussions, Literature & Storytelling, Music & Performing Arts, Current Events, Jewish Interests, and Health & Wellness. Our support groups also enable older adults to connect with peers over common experiences such as vision loss and coping with the loss of a loved one. Class size is limited to encourage discussion.

DOROT’s requirement for an in-home visit by a social worker is waived for this program, but advance registration is necessary.

UWW offers classes for native-speaking Russians to learn and practice English and discuss current events.

UWW programming is facilitated by experts from cultural institutions, medical and legal authorities, as well as professionals and volunteers who are eager to share their expertise and enthusiasm on specific issues.
