University Open Air: Courses taught by immigrant scholars

The September 2023 University Open Air (UOA) session ran, in collaboration with the Prospect Park Alliance, from September 14 - 24, 2023 in the grounds around the Prospect Park Boathouse. Thanks to everyone who participated for making this a delightful experience for us all. The next iteration of University Open Air will be in early spring 2024. Check back for updates.

The Bronx Salsa walking tour has been rescheduled for Saturday, 30th September. See the event listing below.

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 on the grounds around the Prospect Park Boathouse.

For more information about the upcoming session please contact Vanessa Baish at [email protected].

*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.
