The experience is as diverse as our students

The Lifelong Learning program attracts a rich diversity of students from many different places and walks of life. Students join together in a common quest for learning about the role and nature of lifelong learning in today's society. Read below to meet a few of our former students.



Dr. Nancy Taber, Graduate

Dr. Nancy Taber graduated from the Mount's Studies in Lifelong Learning program almost a decade ago. She is now a professor at Brock University in the Center for Adult Education and Community Outreach. We asked Dr. Taber a few questions about her experiences at the Mount.

Kwesi Firempong, Graduate

Kwesi’s thesis explores how a historic 1968 visit of delegates from the Black Panther Party to Halifax impacted African Nova Scotian activism for social justice. He incorporates an Arts-informed approach in his thesis. This approach led him to write a play based on his research into this pivotal moment in activism and social justice in Halifax.

As a culmination of his studies, he will stage a theatre production of his play.
