University Open Air

Back for a short spring refresh, University Open Air (UOA) will be in session at the Center for Brooklyn History April 19-21.

As it always does, UOA provides immigrant teachers, professors, and academics, who were trained outside of the U.S., an opportunity to share their knowledge with the public by welcoming students to enjoy free classes in collaboration with the Prospect Park Alliance. The September semester takes place on the grounds around the Prospect Park Boathouse while the spring residency is housed in one of the library's branch locations.

For more information about the upcoming session please contact Vanessa Baish at

*Please note, while UOA courses aim to equip students with valuable skills, they are non-accredited.

University Open Air is generously supported by The Morris and Alma Schapiro Fund.



Prospect Park Alliance is the non-profit organization that sustains, restores and advances Brooklyn's Backyard, in partnership with the City of New York. The Alliance provides critical staff and resources that keep Prospect Park green and vibrant for the diverse communities that call Brooklyn home.
