Nourish your mind at UM Experience

By UMAA
Class is back in session for the Audrey R. Finkelstein UM Experience. Join us on September 23 and learn from faculty experts how the University of Miami is helping to shape a brighter tomorrow.

Throughout her adult life, the late Audrey R. Finkelstein, A.B. ’38, was a dedicated champion of the University of Miami—and a passionate advocate of lifelong learning.

These two interests converged in 1978, when she created an annual lecture series that showcased University faculty and alumni. In 1984, she and her husband, Charles, established a generous endowment to fund the Alumni College Experience, enabling alumni to experience being in a University classroom again.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Audrey’s graduation year in 1988, the program was renamed the “Audrey R. Finkelstein Alumni College Experience,” and is now known as Audrey R. Finkelstein UM Experience.

Hosted by the University of Miami Alumni Association, each year the UM Experience brings alumni back to campus (either in-person or virtually) to relive the classroom experience via lectures by prominent faculty on intellectually stimulating subjects across a variety of disciplines. 

Fall 2021 UM Experience: Class is Back in Session takes place virtually on September 23, 2021, and there is still time to register. This interactive online experience features a session on advances in artificial intelligence and robotics, another on the pioneering contributions of women filmmakers, and a keynote address on the urgency of continuing to modernize higher education.
