The Lifelong Learning Institute of Elkhart County provides stimulating and affordable short courses in many fields for active seniors. Courses are held in fall and spring, in addition to a lecture series in midwinter.
There are no tests or grades — just the joy of learning. No previous studies or degrees are required. Classes typically meet for one and a half hours, twice a week, for two weeks, though schedules may vary.
LLI instructors are usually seniors themselves, often former teachers, professionals or others with special interests in the area of their course. They volunteer their time. The courses provide for lively discussion.
Courses are held at Goshen College, Greencroft Goshen Community Center and other suitable community locations. Restrictions on class size may apply. Some courses may require extra fees for supplies, transportation or tickets. The winter lecture series is held at Greencroft Goshen, and is free.
A member’s first course is free and additional courses are half price.
For persons in HUD housing, membership is $10 and all courses are free. For non-member HUD residents, classes are $10.
