The classes cover a broad selection of topics, from Jazz Appreciation and Mary Olivers Poetry, to Contemporary Economic Issues and the Great Museums of Philadelphia. There are 29 great topics to choose from. Spring classes will be conducted online, but organizers hope that to bring back in-person classes in the fall.

Each year, CRI enrolls several hundred participants who enjoy learning from skilled teachers, many of whom are retired university professors. Most students enroll for at least two classes.
