TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Top administrators at the University of Kansas and Washburn University are preparing to sign an agreement to offer special classes in Topeka for people 50 and older.

Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little and Washburn President Jerry Farley plan to participate in a signing ceremony Wednesday on the Washburn campus.

Classes will be offered through the University of Kansas' Lifelong Learning Institute, which provides courses in the arts, history, philosophy, culture, health and other popular topics. The goal is to reach older students from a wide range of backgrounds.

The institute began offering classes in 2004 in Lawrence. It now has courses in the Kansas City area as well as Hesston, Hutchinson, Manhattan, North Newton, Ottawa and Ulysses.
