The Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) at North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) will start the spring semester off with a kickoff event and a chance to meet new members, potential members, and faculty of the Lifelong Learning Institute.
NIACC President Dr. Steve Schulz and Dr. Darshini Jayawardena, Director of the Lifelong Learning Institute, will kick off the year with a welcome to those attending on Tuesday, February 16 from 1:00 pm – 3:00pm in the Muse Norris Conference Center at NIACC. There will also be an option to attend online.
Spring classes will be discussed and faculty introduced. Anyone interested in learning more about Lifelong Learning Institute classes and opportunities is encouraged to call 641-422-4358 to register, free of charge, for the spring kickoff. This semester, a new format will be introduced. While the conference center will be limited to a 50 percent capacity, participants will have the opportunity to enjoy coffee in their own homes while virtually attending the event. When registering, you can indicate which method of participation will be most comfortable for you.
“One of the hidden advantages of the Lifelong Learning program is the friendships that develop between class members. The classes provide opportunities to learn, to meet new people, to have fun and to stay in touch with one another”. John Skipper, LLI Faculty and Advisory Board member.
Several new classes will be introduced in the subject areas of history, literature, and culture and cooking. The first day of classes will begin on Thursday, February 18th. Registration can take place at any time throughout the semester.
Membership and registration in the Institute requires a yearly fee of $99 which allows a member to register for any or all classes for two consecutive semesters without additional tuition. The spring semester is from February – June and the fall semester is from September- December. Each semester offers more than 30 classes to choose from. Members become NIACC students with a Student ID, as well as the added benefits of the use of the library and other NIACC facilities. Further membership benefits include Performance Previews (when available), passes to athletic events, and Continuing Education computer classes at half price (when available).
The brochure is available online at www.niacc.edu/lli and online registration is open at www.niacc.augusoft.net. To request a brochure to be mailed to you, contact the NIACC LLI office at 641-422-4358. Brochures will also be available at the kickoff event.
