Adult Learning at UU Wellesley is coordinated by the UU Learning Community (UULC). Our charge is to create a program consistent with Unitarian Universalist principles, through which personal growth is fostered and community bonds strengthened. The UULC offers a wide variety of workshops and events led by members, clergy, and friends of our church, as well as outside speakers, who volunteer to share their expertise or interests. The UULC often partners with leaders of our Social Justice initiatives to examine topics of shared concern. Many programs are open to the public.
The UULC welcomes new ideas for Learning while Connecting! Bring yours to our next meeting. Email the church office HERE for more information.
Check the Calendar for additions and/or changes to our schedule.

Documentary Film: "Waiting for Superman"
UU Wellesley’s exploration of inequality in America continues with a 2010 film by the director of “An Inconvenient Truth.” Following five promising pupils in public schools across the country, “Waiting for Superman” highlights seemingly intractable problems of the education system, with personal stories against a backdrop of statistics. This conversation starter encourages the viewer to consider what it means to society when its youngest members aren’t given an environment in which to thrive. As the tagline says: “The fate of our country won't be decided on a battlefield, it will be determined in a classroom.” 1 hr. 50 minutes
