Learn more about Polis at our website.
Polis is a vibrant community of adult learners who seek to add fulfillment and meaning to their lives through an ongoing engagement with the liberal arts and sciences. Our discussion-based courses include both Eastern and Western authors and ideas. The concept that a “…a city is what it is because the citizens are what they are” (Republic, Book IV) is the driving force behind Polis. Polis offers discussion-based courses in the liberal arts and sciences and an opportunity for adults to be part of a decidedly off-line community. At Polis, we remove the obstacles to learning and community participation for the working adult – our courses are small, local, short-term, and inexpensive. Join us for a course at Polis. We often accompany our class discussions with a finely curated selection of beers. We offer a class series called "Drinkers and Great Thinkers".
