Washburn University and the University of Kansas signed an agreement Wednesday morning to offer courses in Topeka through KU's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. They offer accessible and innovative learning environments for participants for people 50 and over.

WU President Jerry Farley and KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little joined in making the announcement at Washburn's campus.

"I'm especially pleased today to form this partnership with Washburn University because it means that there will be more opportunities for people in this part of Kansas to participate in that same high quality experience," Gray-Little said.

"We're excited here at Washburn to be a part of this," Farley said. "Thanks for extending the invitation to join this program. We appreciate the opportunity. we know this collaboration will strengthen both of us."

The Institute started in 2004 with classes first offered in Lawrence.
