Clear Lake Association of Senior Programs

The Clear Lake Association of Senior Programs (CLASP) provides lifelong learning opportunities through free programs open to the public.

CLASP is an outreach initiative of the University of Houston-Clear Lake and was developed to provide education and intellectual challenge to our community. We offer an evening speaker series UHCL every first Thursday of the month. Community friends of all ages are invited to enjoy the challenge of learning about new and varied subjects.
