Ringling College Lifelong Learning Academy Course Proposal

slide_standardsThank you for your interest in teaching a course at the Ringling College Lifelong Learning Academy (RCLLA). Your proposal will be submitted to the Curriculum Committee for consideration. The Curriculum Committee is comprised of RCLLA staff and volunteers, who are each responsible for various topic areas.

  • A stipend of $25 per session ($200 for an eight-week class; $150 for a six-week class, etc.);
  • Free courses for you (and your significant other) for one year, starting in the quarter in which you’re teaching, on a space-available basis;
