Averett’s Community Programs

In our Community Programs, we offer several affordable non-credit classes that encourage community members in Danville and the surrounding area to explore “interest” topics that enrich their lives. 

We have a variety of classes that allow participants to interact with Averett faculty and staff in a relaxed, noncompetitive atmosphere.  No pressure to study – only freedom to enjoy and learn.

The 1859 – Coffeehouse Lecture Series is designed to bring community members to Averett’s Main Campus to interact in a small, relaxed setting for the life-long learners. The series allows Averett to showcase its faculty – current and retired – to Danville and the surrounding communities. The series is free, and is held in the multipurpose room of the Student Center (second floor).
