Glencroft University’s spring semester kicked off on February 8 with a session led by Glencroft President and CEO John Wenzlau, who discussed lessons learned during 2020 and what’s in store for Glencroft’s ZoeLife community throughout 2021.
Steve Heller, Vice President and Director of ZoeLife Operations also serves as Chancellor for Glencroft University. Course topics support mission-based pillar competencies, based on the ZoeLife foundational pillars of wellness: spiritual, emotional, physical, social, intellectual, and vocational.
Courses are taught by a variety of industry experts covering topics spanning healthcare and mental health, exercise and nutrition, spirituality and religion, elder law, financial services, caregiving, and personal development.
Glencroft residents may participate in as many courses as they like. Those who wish to “graduate” from Glencroft University must attend eight classes per pillar (48 classes total). For many, this is a “bucket list” goal that they thoroughly enjoy! Glencroft offers a variety of topics each year, throughout spring and fall semesters. Courses are provided at no cost to residents of the Glencroft Center for Modern Aging.
Residents interested in volunteering may contact Vocational Pillar Director Tiffany Foss at (623) 847-3081. Volunteer credits may be applied toward graduation requirements to satisfy vocational pillar learning requirements.
Glencroft prioritizes the safety of its staff and residents and follows CDC guidelines for safe pandemic practices. Social distancing and mask requirements are enforced for onsite learning. Residents may also watch lectures from their living rooms via Livestream, and call (623) 847-3133 with questions during each lecture.
