Lifelong Learning Institute: Semester Kickoff Coffee

The Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) at North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) will start the fall semester off with a kickoff event and a chance to meet new members, potential members, and faculty of the Lifelong Learning Institute.

NIACC President Dr. Steve Schulz and Dr. Darshini Jayawardena, Director of the Lifelong Learning Institute, will kick off the semester with a welcome to those attending on Tuesday, August 17 from 1:00 pm – 3:00pm in the Muse Norris Conference Center at NIACC.

Fall classes will be discussed and faculty introduced.  Anyone interested in learning more about Lifelong Learning Institute classes and exciting learning opportunities is encouraged to call 641-422-4358 to register, free of charge, for the fall kickoff.

“One of the hidden advantages of the Lifelong Learning program is the friendships that develop between class members. The classes provide opportunities to learn, to meet new people, to have fun and to stay in touch with one another”. John Skipper, LLI Faculty and Advisory Board member.

Several new classes will be introduced in the subject areas of history, literature, and culture and cooking. The first day of classes will begin on Friday, September 3rd.

Registration can take place at any time throughout the semester.
