New director of community education at UNM-LA
Eva Artschwager has joined the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos as its director of Community Education. The position will allow Artschwager to put additional emphasis on enriching the branch’s Community Education offerings. Her initial goals include meeting the community’s lifelong-learning needs, providing classes that will benefit employees and employers within the area, and partnering with other service organizations (such as the YMCA and Los Alamos Cooperative Market) to identify and fill service gaps.
The Community Education department has already expanded its offerings with more than 20 new classes this fall. While some classes began on August 20, many more have later start dates. One of the new instructors, Robert Benedetti, the instructor for “Shakespeare in Production,” has won three Emmys and a Peabody award. A new class on Science Fiction begins on September 24, and there will be new “Enrichment Classes for Younger Students.”
