Learning in Retirement


Learning in Retirement (LIR) is a member-led and university-sponsored organization for individuals 50 years of age and above that provides a unique opportunity for cultural growth, lifelong learning, and recreation. Members are involved in determining curriculum, recruiting new members, managing the budget, and developing social programming.

Membership is $75 per term (Fall or Spring) or $135 for the year, and entitles you to choose from among  75+ classes  each term, most of which have no extra charge beyond your membership fee. (Registration for yearly membership is available in fall term only.)
