Continuing Education & Workforce Training

ABOUT THE INSTITUTE
Established in 2001, the IAL features lifelong learning, luncheon lectures, and special events such as day outings to museums or other attractions within a reasonable driving distance. The IAL is an affiliate of the Road Scholar Network, comprised of over 300 independent community-based organizations of retirement-age people who share a love of learning and a desire for sociability. The Institute offers lifelong learning to senior adults at a reduced cost. By paying full membership dues, members are entitled to take as many IAL classes as they choose.

All members are encouraged to serve on a committee to help guide the organization and/or share your expertise by leading a class. You may prefer to participate by simply taking courses offered by the Institute. The IAL offers unique educational opportunities that emphasize collaborative leadership and active member participation. In the company of like-minded people, members may enjoy college-level academic pursuits without concern for credit, grades or prerequisites.

The IAL encourages its members to suggest course offerings and to participate as instructors. If you are interested in teaching, please see the Teaching Proposal form.
