Senior Professionals is a unique, exciting organization for retired persons in Central Illinois. The brainchild of Dr. Charles Bolen, retired professor of music and former Dean of the College of Fine Arts, the group was formed in 1989 to provide partnerships among retired people, Illinois State University students, faculty, and the community.
Those in Senior Professionals serve as valuable resources for the academic functions of the University. In addition, they strengthen the relationship of Illinois State University within the community. The Senior Professionals organization offers creative learning experiences, cultural enrichment and social interaction. As members of Senior Professionals, they do their part in serving Illinois State University and the community.

Ancient Philosophy and the Art of Living: Ancient Greek and Roman philosophers have a lot to tell us about lining in the 21st century. Plato tells us that the limits of democracy; Aristotle tells us about the best of human life; Lucretius tells us why we shouldn't fear death; and Seneca tells us why being angry is never justified.
