Learning for a Lifetime
The nonprofit, member-run, Plato Society of Los Angeles, located near UCLA at 1083 Gayley Avenue, Westwood, has for 30 years been a terrific place to get together with other people who have a deep passion for learning. It has been described by the Wall Street Journal as one of the finest lifelong learning communities in the country, and as unique by The New York Times.
The PLATO Society is open to anyone with a love of learning who is interested and willing to participate. Members meet regularly in Westwood, near UCLA, to study and discuss topics of interest in science, history, philosophy, biography, art, music, theatre, literature, political science, and more. About 25 peer led seminars are ongoing at any time. In addition, we offer optional day trips, foreign trips, lectures, luncheon discussions, theatre and dining groups, multi-day getaways, and more.
The PLATO Society is self-run and non-profit. It was originally started by UCLA (and is still associated with the UCLA honors program). Many of our 400 members work part time or are retired.
