First Selection for Wednesday Documentary Series
The Sundance award-winning documentary DARK MONEY. The film examines the influence of untraceable corporate money on elections, our elected officials, and how elections are bought and sold. The story unfolds as a Montana journalist attempts to expose the real-life impacts of the US Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision.
Who We Are?
FELS (Friends of Encore Learning, Stockton), an affiliate of Stockton University, is a non-profit organization whose mission focuses on education. We offer a unique selection of entertaining, interactive and educational courses to South Jersey residents. Our members can sign up for courses that include documentary films, opera, short stories, comparative religions, and many other thought-provoking and relevant topics. The low-cost membership and course registration fees collected are used to offer scholarships to local students who want to achieve their educational goals at Stockton University.
What We Offer:
FELS provides participants a chance to interact and connect with other life-long learners and instructors in a hospitable, social setting. You meet people who share your interests while knowing that you are part of an organization that gives our youth the head start to successful careers a college degree provides.
One of our attendees said, I’m happy to have something stimulating to do through the cold-weather months in South Jersey – whether you live on the shore or on the mainland.
Who Are Our Instructors?
Our programs are facilitated by university instructors and/or professionals in their field. Many have taught previous FELS courses and have loyal followers. One of our Stockton professors observed, I enjoy the fact that none of my students ask if what I’m talking about will be on the exam, and nobody is looking at their cell phones. Everyone here comes to learn something new.We hope to see you in our courses this year.
