SAGE (an acronym for study, activity, growth and enrichment) is a self-supporting group of retired and semi-retired people who share a passion for learning and meet to exchange knowledge and develop new interests.
SAGE has about 175 members committed to active learning. Every semester, SAGE's study-discussion committee plans a series of seminars based on suggestions from group members. Seminars are conducted by SAGE members, who research the topics, make presentations and moderate lively discussions.
Examples of SAGE Topics:
- From Stage to Screen: Plays into Movies
- The Social Safety Net
- Evolution of U.S. Immigration Policy
- U.S. Foreign Affairs and Tension Areas
- Masterpieces of Literature
SAGE offers several lunch forums each year in the San Fernando Valley featuring expert speakers, and sponsored a Senior Computers class on the CSUN campus for more than 20 years that taught computer basics to senior citizens.
