About the Institute for Learning in Retirement

ILR is a non-profit, community-based group of adults who share a love of learning. At its heart, ILR is an academic program designed to suit varied interests.

In the company of like-minded peers, members have the opportunity to enjoy college-level academic pursuits without concern for credit, grades or prerequisites. This creates unique educational opportunities made possible by active membership participation and collaborative leadership.

ILR is hosted by Albertus Magnus College which provides classroom space for our fall (October-November) and spring (April-May) semesters.  Other classes are held at the University of New Haven's Orange campus, the Woodbridge Library, the Jewish Community Center in Woodbridge and other sites.

Many of the courses we offer are led by active or retired professors from various colleges and universities in our area.  Others are led by ILR members who want to share their academic interests and passions with their peers.

All our classes are held during the day.  Most are on weekdays, although we occasionally have one on a Saturday.

As a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization ILR receives its sole funding from annual Membership Dues of $30 per person.

Course registration is open only to current ILR members.

If you are retired or semi-retired and are looking for a meaningful way to fill your newly acquired leisure time and meet new friends, we encourage you to become a member of our non-profit organization.

Whether you have an interest in the arts, literature, music, current events, history, science, movies, social lunches or museums, ILR can provide enrichment to your life.

Please browse our website to discover the many ways you can keep learning and get involved.  We would love to have you as a member.
