The Evergreen Forum is a volunteer organization under the auspices of the Princeton Senior Resource Center. Courses are open to all adult residents of Princeton and its neighboring communities. Classes are held at various locations in Princeton, including the Princeton Senior Resource Center's Suzanne Patterson Building, the Princeton Public Library and Princeton's Monument Hall. Course fees cover administrative services, overhead costs and classroom space. The Evergreen Forum is an affiliate of the Road Scholar Institute Network.
Due to the popularity of The Evergreen Forum and our commitment to small discussion-based classes, participants for over-subscribed courses are selected by lottery. Detailed course information is emailed to students at least two weeks prior to the start of classes, which generally run for eight weeks.
Governance of the Evergreen Forum is conducted by a Steering Committee elected by participants in the program at an Annual Meeting. The Steering Committee makes policy with respect to the courses offered, the recruitment and evaluation of course leaders and the conduct of the Annual Meeting and other meetings for participants. PSRC manages all administrative aspects of the program. Steering Committee positions include Chair, Vice-Chair, and Secretary as well as Standing and Ad Hoc committees with specified responsibilities.
Steering Committee Members 2016-17:
Lee Harrod - Chair
Lynne Cullinane - Vice Chair
Irene Amarel - Secretary
PSRC Liaison: Abigail Meletti
