Other Study Opportunities

Lifetime Learning Institute

The Lifetime Learning Institute (LLI) at Bard offers noncredit and noncompetitive courses that provide members with opportunities to share their love of learning and to exchange ideas and experiences. Sponsored by Bard College in affiliation with the Elderhostel Institute Network, LLI is entirely self-administered by volunteers, who are encouraged to become committee workers, presenters, planners, and course coordinators. Courses are held during the spring and fall semesters, and during a January intersession. Membership is open to older adults for a modest fee, on a space-available basis.
