The Institute for Learning in Retirement (ILR) at Miami University provides opportunities to explore, develop, and share knowledge and skills in a wide variety of topics. Courses taught by volunteer instructors, complemented by a variety of special events, enable participants to broaden their horizons and engage with other lifelong learners.

Thank You for Another Great Semester!

This past fall, our instructors, volunteers, and members assisted in making the transition to hybrid classes an overwhelming success. With a desire to continually innovate and meet our students where they are, we are proud to announce that in addition to in-person classes, virtual and hybrid courses will continue to be offered for the foreseeable future.

Enjoy the winter season. We look forward to seeing you for the spring 2022 semester, March 28—April 29, as we celebrate ILR’s 25th anniversary!

See what others are saying about their ILR experience.
