Education for Adults: Quaker Centres and Friends Universities


There are two Quaker centres - Woodbrooke, in Birmingham, UK and Pendle Hill, in Wallingford, Pennsylvania, US. Both run rich programmes of courses and retreats, and both host conferences and other events. Woodbrooke was founded in 1903, and Pendle Hill in 1930. There are several universities founded by Friends, nearly all in the US, and Quakers have been instrumental in establishing  Peace Studies departments in UK and US universities.
