Duties and Responsibilities

The Encore Program at San Juan College creates opportunities for older adults to maintain lifelong vitality through self-development and service—and it presents an opportunity for instructors to offer a wide variety of specialized academic courses to an audience who generally take the classes for personal enrichment purposes.

Encore offers one-credit academic classes during the Fall, Spring and Summer sessions, designed for students 50 and older but open to all students 18 and older. Classes consist of 16 hours of instruction for lecture classes and 24 hours of instruction for activity or lab classes. These classes can be taught in the classroom or during special presentations including field trips, and scheduling for these classes can be flexible, based on content, classroom availability and other offerings. Instructors are responsible for course development, classroom management and high quality instruction, and instructors will create an appropriate syllabus for each class.
