The Pursuit of Knowledge is a Lifelong Joy and Endeavor

When Canterbury Woods first opened its doors, a vibrant group of residents began to meet each week to discuss advances they’d read about in Scientific American magazine. From this simple gathering of friends and neighbors, our community’s on-campus continuing education resource was born. Canterbury University has grown from a casual gathering of curious residents to a comprehensive, well-crafted program that hosts both resident and guest speakers and covers a wide range of topics for diverse interests. 

Canterbury University offers the opportunity to explore interesting topics and other cultures. These unique educational programs are developed and led by Canterbury Woods residents.
