WHO AND WHAT WE ARE

ILIR is a 501(c)3 organization of retired and semi-retired individuals interested in lifelong learning and cultural enrichment.

Our  mission is to enhance the lives of attendees by peer learning, social  interaction, and active participation in an academic environment.

The  learning process takes place in small and large study groups, using the  peer-learning model; that is, a partnership between students and  facilitators. Our group leaders are all volunteers who give willingly of  their time, talent and love of their subject.

For 25 years,  the Institute for Learning in Retirement (I.L.I.R.) has provided  stimulating educational programs for retirees of all ages. Over the  years our stimulating courses have provided something for most tastes  and interests, from science to art, music, current events, philosophy,   government, law, foreign language and movies. 

Several of them  are drawn from our own students and board of directors. Many of them  have professional experience in the subject they teach. Others have a  long-standing love of their field and are well-versed and well-rehearsed  in their subject matter.

Often guest speakers are invited to address the classes  and some classes include live music, DVDs, CDs and slide presentation.

With the exception of a part-time Program Director, the entire organization is operated by volunteers.

There is an active volunteer Board of Directors that oversees every aspect of the institution, including finances and curric
