Examine ideas, acquire knowledge and fuel your curiosity as part of the Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) of Ohio Wesleyan University (OWU) in collaboration with several Delaware-area organizations. The LLI of OWU offers a variety of educational programs using peer learning concepts in a relaxed environment to benefit intellectually curious older adults. 

Fall 2024 term

Mark your calendars!  The Fall 2024 term of the Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) is scheduled from October 7 - November 15. Fall term registration will open in early August.

Courses are taught by volunteers, including professors, practitioners and others in a non-competitive environment, with each class meeting for approximately two hours. 

Information on LLI events is sent to everyone who has attended a past LLI class, received a previous LLI email, and/or requested to be on the LLI email list.  If you are new to the LLI, be sure to join our email list to be kept up-to-date.

Examples of past classes can be found HERE.

We look forward to seeing you on campus. Thank you for your interest in the Lifelong Learning Institute!
