CLR, a program in DelVal’s Office of Continuing and Professional Studies, brings to members of the retired and semi-retired community opportunities for personal growth through learning. For more than 30 years, CLR has provided a diverse selection of peer-led classes each semester for its 500-plus members.

Membership includes unlimited participation in classes in the arts and music, science, technology, history, philosophy, language and current topics, as well as exclusive events, guest speakers, special interest groups, and community partnerships.

If the DelVal campus is closed or delayed because of weather or other emergency, an announcement will be made on the radio and television, the main campus number (215.345.1500),, through the e2Campus* text alert system and our social media pages. We ask that you refrain from calling Public Safety. e2Campus is a digital alert system that notifies individuals in the event of an emergency or disaster. In the event of an emergency, a text message is sent out to any registered cell phone and email address; students are alerted immediately of any threat or condition on campus, including inclement weather. If Delaware Valley University has a delay due to weather, all CLR classes are cancelled.

*New Policy Effective Spring 2020* Please note that for your convenience and safety, current CLR members will be automatically signed up to receive e2Campus alerts throughout the semester. Cell phone numbers and email addresses on file for current members will be uploaded into the e2Campus system during registration processing. Before the start of the given semester, members will receive a notification confirming that they have been enrolled and providing them with an opportunity to opt-out if they wish.
