Smart Towns:  A smart way to learn!

Smart Towns is a lifelong learning program for everyone in the community led by educational organizations in Rochester, Rochester Hills, and Oakland Township, Michigan. The Smart Towns partners work together to provide a unique series of programs exploring one theme or topic for one year. Lectures, presentations, and courses introduce the participants to all aspects of the topic and are presented by experts in their respective fields of study.

Programs are offered January through November and are hosted by the various partners, which include: Ascension Providence Rochester Hospital, Meadow Brook Hall, Oakland University, Rochester University, Rochester-Avon Historical Society, Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm, and Rochester Hills Public Library.
