Bar Harbor Summer Seminar Program (BHSSP)

The Bar Harbor Summer Seminar Program (BHSSP) offers seminars tailored practically towards business, financial and professional audiences. Other courses are directed at understanding ethical and philosophical issues. Some programs fall into both categories. The BHSSP exists for three major reasons. First, lifelong learning is too important to be left exclusively to formal institutions of higher education. Second, intellectual and personal growth need not be divorced from more pleasant aspects of life, and can take place very effectively and enjoyably in inspiring contexts such as a Mount Desert Island "vacation." Third, participation in the BHSSP can lead to sharing the experiences and wisdom of, and the formation of enduring relationships with, other active and interesting thinkers and doers.
