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.

Class Offerings

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 four periods of one hour and fifteen minutes on the campus of Bard College.  LLI also offers three to four off-Friday and off-campus classes each semester. Intersession is held in January when eight separate courses are offered.

Donations, Grants and Incentives

  • Bard Conservatory - In 2012 LLI pledged $25,000 to the Bard Conservatory to be paid out over a five-year period.  This donation was matched by an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant.
  • Seniors to Seniors- Five graduating students receive grants to help them complete their senior projects. They are competitively chosen by a committee from the college and may use the grant in any way they deem necessary. Prior to graduation the recipients make a presentation at a High Tea hosted by the members of LLI.
  • Bard High School/Early College Summer Intern Incentive- Bard's new high school in NYC offers selected students the opportunity to graduate high school with two years of college credit. In the summer before their senior year many of the students participate in unpaid internships. LLI provides a small stipend to four students to pay their expenses during this time.
  • Bard Center for Civic Engagement Community Action Awards - In 2013 LLI donated $3,500 to CCE to support student internships, travel, and other costs associated with student research projects related to civic engagement.
