Irem Temple Restoration Project University

January 18 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

IRTP University

Do you want to learn more about Wyoming Valley history in 20 minutes than most residents learn in a lifetime? At ITRP University you can attend 3 semesters, take your final exam, get your diploma and be off to the graduation party in under 30 minutes…. for the low, low price of $29.99!

Passing students are eligible to win prizes from a random drawing at the graduation party, those with higher grades have a better chance to win. We will have live music from Proud Monkey and food from Café Toscana.

Learn about the history of the Haudenosaunee 6 Nations from lacrosse legend Gewas Schindler who is part Seneca, Onondaga, Oneida and Mohawk.. Tony Brooks and Clark Switzer, two legendary NEPA historians, will then guide you from the founding of Wilkes-Barre through the aftermath of the American Revolution.

You can mingle with the ITRP team at the graduation party and discuss ideas for a “PHD project” that involves creating content for the NEPA Heritage Center, which will provide support/resources to qualifying projects. We plan to launch the Irem Heritage Center 2025 and want it to be a world class venue at the grand opening. The hard work needs to start now.

Scholarships are available to those at the high school or college level who:

Teach history, anthropology, archaeology, media or any other applicable courses

School Administrators and Board Members

Board Member or Employee of any Local Historical Society or Museum

Students interested in internship opportunities.
