Lifelong learning

  • ILR students in the classroom
  • ILR trip to the farm
  • ILR clogging group
  • ILR garden tour


No tests or grades, no quizzes or papers, just individuals gathering to explore a topic of interest for the pure joy of learning.  That is what the Institute for Learning in Retirement program is all about. 

Sponsored by Bluffton University, the program is designed for retired/semi-retired people. Many of the courses are designed and led by the members of the institute. The Institute for Learning In Retirement offers fall, winter and spring courses at the university. Students may sign up for as many IRL courses as they wish for one set price.
