Center for Life and Learning


For men and women 60+

The Center for Life and Learning (CLL) was founded in 1965 with a commitment to intellectual and creative challenges for its patrons. Each year more than 400 active men and women 60 years and older take advantage of daily opportunities to explore new interests, strengthen friendships, and continue to shape their lives and communities. Our participants represent a wide variety of personal and professional backgrounds. All are welcome!

The Autumn 2022 Session will begin on September 12! We’ll be bringing back the slate of annual classes with our beloved instructors as well as new lectures, instructors, and events.
Our annual classes are for CLL members only; however, we do offer several special topic lectures, social events, and beginner classes if you’d like to try out the program first.
