Community Education

Never stop learning. At the Desmond Campus, you can gain valuable skills, expand your mind, and maybe even find a new interest or vocation. 

The Desmond Campus offers noncredit courses in the day, evening, and in Saturday sessions at the Catalog cover image for Spring 2020college's beautiful Desmond Campus in Balmville.

The center aims to maintain a balance between the practical and cultural aspects of learning. In addition to our noncredit courses and day trips, we also offer courses designed for adults age 55 and older called Learning is Forever Enriching (L.I.F.E.).

The L.I.F.E. program offers day trips and opportunities to explore the Hudson Valley and New York City with a focus on the arts, history, architecture, literature, music, the Hudson River, and many other topics. We encourage and welcome suggestions for new courses, programs, and seminars.
