Lifetime Learning Institute
The Lifetime Learning Institute at Bard College is an all-volunteer organization of about 250 members that sponsors two seven-week semesters, intersession events in January, and special events throughout the year. Our presenters volunteer from our membership, the community and the Bard faculty.
Organization and Membership
LLI is a vibrant organization of people devoted to lifetime learning. The institute is part of a network of similar organizations, the Elderhostel Institute Network, at college campuses throughout the country. Members are encouraged to actively participate in study, discussion and the operation of the institute.
The LLI membership year begins in the fall and ends in the spring. Core classes meet on Fridays from late March to mid-May and from late September to mid-November, in five periods of one hour and twenty minutes on the campus of Bard College. LLI also offers four off-Friday each semester. Intersession 2015 will run for five weeks, extending through January and ending after the first Wednesday in February. This 2015 Intersession will be comprised of ten separate presentations.
