    Community-based educational programs designed for adults who commute and take courses on a semester basis. Lifelong learning classes are sponsored by Institutes for Learning in Retirement (ILRs). Most ILRs are sponsored by a college or university and offer non-credit academic programs with no attached Continuing Education Credits. A lifelong learning program is structured like a typical college program with regular semesters and often homework. While some lifelong learning programs are restricted to seniors, others are open to adults of any age.

    INSTITUTE FOR LIFELONG LEARNINGOffers a membership program that has been in existence at Molloy College since 1992. Most members are retirees, however, not everyone, nor is this a requisite for membership. Many members are consultants, work part time, own their own business or volunteer and are therefore at liberty to participate in day activities. Some members are in their fifties, sixties, seventies, some in their eighties and beyond. All ages are welcome, men and women, singles or couples, as long as there is a willingness to participate in learning and to maintain a rigorous mind. Members have one thing in common: love of learning, leading an interesting, stimulating and satisfying life. The Molloy Institute limits the size of the membership to keep a genial and warm atmosphere among the group, thereby promoting a close rapport with other learners, faculty and presenters.As a member of MILL you are also entitled to audit undergraduate credit classes on a space available basis (Rockville Centre MILL Groups only). Your participation is encouraged regardless of your previous level of formal education and scholarships are available. MILL membership is culturally diversified and invites participants from varied religions and ethnic backgrounds. When joining one must decide which day is preferable for one's schedule. There is no minimum nor maximum age to belong to the Institute. All you need is a desire to learn and to enjoy friendly and stimulating people. Members are invited to present one session to their group each year. By leading one session on current events, book or movie review, or a personal experience, the member is able to feel closer to the group and the group with the presenter. Trips are scheduled throughout the year. Membership requires an application and there are a limited number of memberships available. Membership is valid from September 1 to August 31 each year and lectures usually start mid-September and runs until mid-June. However, it is possible to join one of the MILL groups throughout the year if space is available. We invite and encourage interested applicants to come to a session prior to joining MILL. There is an annual membership fee for singles and couples.
