Emeritus is a non-profit, fee-based, program at Diablo Valley College (DVC) that provides affordable, short-term, enrichment classes and activities for older adults. We offer a variety of classes such as history, geology, writing, cooking, music and more. Classes are conveniently offered at DVC and John F Kennedy University (JFKU) in Pleasant Hill and Rossmoor in Walnut Creek. We serve over 300 students each term and we are growing everyday. Emeritus is designed for older adults who are lifelong learners. Most of our classes are led by distinguished retired faculty or those who are experts in their field and have a true passion for teaching.
