New! Fall 2020 Courses

Explore New Courses & Experiences this Fall
ILR Fall 2020 Registration is Open

Dear ILR and Lifelong Learning Students,

In an effort to keep us all safe, most fall ILR and Lifelong Learning courses will be offered online. We are committed to ensuring our students still have access to unique and stimulating learning experiences through our many courses. We are here to help you with any questions along the way.

If you’re interested in taking an ILR or Lifelong Learning course this semester, but have questions about how an online course will work, you can register for one of our free 30-minute tutorial sessions. During the online session, you’ll be connected with one of our staff members, as well as other curious students, to help familiarize you with the online platform and work out any issues before deciding to register for an online course.

As always, our courses this semester have a little bit of something for everyone with courses including How to Use Your DNA Matches for Your Genealogy Research, Separating Fact and Fiction in this Election Cycle, The Art of Art Interpretation, Lincoln, Indians, and the West, and more.

If you’re looking for ways to stay hopeful and positive these days, you may be interested in Barbara Angleberger’s course, “Finding Happiness During Challenging Times.” This course will examine the multi-faceted aspects of happiness, including the need for sadness in our lives. It will touch on teachings from Aristotle, who believed everything we do in life stems from our motivation to attain happiness, as well as The Dalai Lama, who said happiness is contingent upon our actions toward others and how we live our life on a day-to-day basis.

We hope you all find happiness in one or more of our courses, which each offer the chance to connect and engage with others from the safety of your own home. We are excited for another semester of enriching courses, and we look forward to the day we can all be together again. In the meantime, we hope you continue learning – while staying safe and healthy.
