Fall Courses Begin September 13, in person and on Zoom

See the Enrollment page on the Classes drop-down menu.

Registration is still open for available spaces until the beginning of the second class in each course. Anyone registered for a Fall Term course may drop the course by the beginning of the second session and receive a refund.

You may register via paper or online form, and confirmation of registration will be sent via email. Please check your spam folder, because some CVEC messages have been directed there by some email systems.

FiftyNorth has announced a mask requirement for everyone in the building.

This requirement affects the instructor and students in one course offered there.

Village on the Cannon also has a mask requirement in place, affecting instructors and students in three courses.

Watch for additional announcements –

the Covid situation remains fluid, due to the delta variant.

Update: Planning for the Annual Meeting has been suspended by the CVEC Board until the January Board meeting. Caution about the Covid situation requires reconsideration of the best way to celebrate CVEC accomplishments. Please watch for additional announcements.

Among the changes for CVEC this past academic year were the departures and hiring of two-thirds of our staff: our Registration and Finance Director and our Curriculum Director. Both the retirees (Bill Rizzo and Perry Mason) and the new recruits (Nicole Barnette and Daniel Sullivan) will be feted when we can safely convene for an Annual Meeting.

The program will include recognition of milestones, results of the election of Board members and officers, a talk by one of our new instructors, David Sauer, fascinating reports, and, with luck, pie and coffee.

Announcing a New Curriculum Director

After four successful years as Curriculum Director, Perry Mason has announced his intention to hand off this critically important job to someone else. During his tenure, Perry has assembled high quality courses every term, and when the pandemic struck, he worked with others to train instructors to offer the CVEC brand of superb instruction via video conference, keeping our program going and growing despite the necessary restrictions.

Fortunately, we were able to find the ideal candidate, familiar with CVEC courses through taking and teaching them as well as having superb experience in higher ed. Daniel Sullivan, President Emeritus of St Lawrence University, will become the Curriculum Director as of July 1, 2021. For now, Dan and Perry are working together to plan fall term, which is shaping up as a slate of courses divided between the Zoom and in-person options. More to come on that.

Daniel Sullivan, CVEC Curriculum Director
