About the The University Without Walls:
The University Without Walls is part of DOROT, a nonprofit dedicated to alleviating social isolation among older adults and providing services to help them live independently as valued members of the community. Our interactive teleconference programs, and our new video conference program, bring courses and workshops to older adults in the comfort of their homes. Older adults can connect with others and benefit from educational, cultural and entertainment from anywhere with just a telephone connection. All programs are low cost, and the majority of seniors participate for free.

DOROT – Generations Helping Generations
Vision, Mission and Values Statement
For more than three decades, DOROT has been an innovative leader in the fields of aging services and volunteerism. Building upon this success, we initiated a strategic planning process with the overriding goal of strengthening our ability to carry out our core mission.
The strategic plan, adopted by DOROT’s Board of Directors in March 2011, is guided by the Vision, Mission and Values as set forth below. The Mission Statement highlights DOROT’s belief that reducing social isolation, along with providing concrete services, has a powerful effect on improving the lives and health of older adults. In revising the Mission Statement, we wanted to give more prominence to the intent that underlies all we do, and emphasize the real impact our programs have on enabling seniors to live with dignity, independence and improved health in the community. In an era of concern over rapidly rising health care costs and a nation that is rapidly aging, our work will have increasing importance.
DOROT will be an innovative leader in mobilizing volunteers of all ages to improve the lives and health of the elderly, addressing the challenges of an aging society.
DOROT alleviates social isolation among the elderly and provides services to help them live independently as valued members of the community. We serve the Jewish and wider community, bringing the generations together in a mutually beneficial partnership of elders, volunteers and professionals. Our work provides an effective model for others.
