Starting this summer, UNC Charlotte's Continuing Education department will offer a series of free educational events covering a variety of topics.
The Brown Bag Series begins with a seminar on Becoming Social Security Savvy on August 6 at 12:00 PM at our Center City location. The discussion's topics will include how Social Security benefits are calculated, how benefits are taxed, maximizing spousal and survivor benefits, and personal claiming decisions. Participants will come away with a clear understanding of how monthly Social Security income changes based on the age at which you claim, strategic ideas for maximizing your personal Social Security benefits, and insight on how to incorporate Social Security into a comprehensive retirement income strategy.
This is event is free and open to the public, though registration is required.
Whether looking for a walk in the woods or some fun on a lake, UNC Charlotte’s Venture outdoor education program has the right summer trip. Led by experienced outdoor facilitators, Venture trips are open to UNC Charlotte students, faculty, staff and the general public.
All trips require a mandatory pre-trip meeting to review the itinerary, safety precautions and for participants to meet their companions. Typically, all equipment and transportation are provided by Venture.
This summer, trips include outings to South Mountains State Park for hiking and Lake Jocassee for camping and kayaking.
