ALFA - About Us

About Us

ALFA stands for Adult Learning in the Fitchburg Area. Originally begun as a program for local seniors, ALFA has since expanded to include participants from over fifteen surrounding communities.

ALFA is a Lifelong Learning Institute that offers non-credit daytime courses and special activities designed and implemented by the members of the ALFA in coordination with the professional staff at Fitchburg State.

Mission

ALFA provides an opportunity for lifelong learners with similar interests to meet in an informal setting and pursue learning for enrichment and personal growth.

ALFA is sponsored by the Center for Professional Studies and the Office of Graduate and Continuing Education at Fitchburg State University, in collaboration with volunteer representatives of the community. Classes generally will be held in the C-wing of the McKay Campus School located at 67 Rindge Road.
