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

Lunch & Life
Lunch & Life is a four-week lecture series held in the fall, winter and spring. It is free and open to the public! Normally presented in partnership with St. Mary Catholic Church, Lunch & Life is online via Zoom until further notice. TSCOR members 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.

TSCOR travels locally and long-distance with one-day tours and overnight trips planned by our travel committee volunteers. Travel is open to the general public and TSCOR members enjoy a discounted rate. (Members, invite your friends to come along!). We’ve been to Broadway and Wolf Trap, toured New Bern, NC, seen the Crooked Road in VA, and recently visited historical sites and trending eateries here in Richmond. Visit our travel page for more info. Due to the pandemic, all travel has been temporarily suspended.
