Administrative history

In 1982 an ad hoc committee of the New Horizons group, funded in part through the Kinsmen Foundation, met to discuss incorporating as a new entity. Their aim was to help provide seniors with access to post-secondary level education. Initially intending to call themselves the “University Learning for Seniors Association,” that name, ultimately, was discarded in favour of “Seniors’ Cultural and Creative Studies, Inc.” It was incorporated 24 January 1983.

In cooperation with the University of Saskatchewan Extension Division, a series of lectures and faculty were established. Although modified versions of courses offered in the regular calendar, the approach to the classes was scholarly. Courses were suggested by seniors, discussed in terms of the availability of lecturers, etc., with final approval by the SCCS Executive.

The name of the organization was changed in January 1995 to “Saskatoon Seniors Continued Learning.” Although some courses in the early years included curriculum from other colleges, the SSCL currently works primarily in collaboration with the College of Arts and Science. Courses are non-credit. The SSCL has a membership of over 300.
