Learning never retires

Learning in Retirement is created for and directed by retired and semi-retired Northwoods residents. The program offers short-term learning experiences in a relaxed, informal, and friendly environment. This is learning for the sheer pleasure of it. There are no grades, no tests, and no required attendance.


Dear LIR Members, 

Due to the onset of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, all Nicolet College Learning in Retirement classes were suspended effective Monday, March 16. Your health and safety was deemed our top priority at that challenging moment.

We used the term suspended in the hope that those classes could be rescheduled as face-to-face meetings during the Fall 2020 semester. That has not been possible as the pandemic has not yet subsided.  

Our Fall 2020 calendar relies almost exclusively on virtual formats as we continue to place health and safety ahead of convenience.  We hope to return to conducting face-to-face meetings for the Winter/Spring 2021 semester if possible.  If not, we will continue our efforts to provide even more virtual options if we must.

We will keep all of you informed of new developments in the LIR program. In the meantime, please take good care of yourselves and each other.
