As an integral part of James Madison University, the member-driven Lifelong Learning Institute (JMU-LLI) promotes lifelong learning by providing affordable, not-for-credit, intellectual, cultural, and social experiences to enrich the lives of adults in the central Shenandoah Valley.
Join our members in their passion to live life to the fullest. While there is no age restriction to our activities, most classes meet during the weekdays, once a week for two hours for five weeks. We offer a wide variety of classes – history, art, music, current events, religion, science, literature, languages, hobbies and many others. Classes meet at a variety of locations across Rockingham County. There are no tests or grades, just the love of learning.
There are also one-hour brown bag learning lunches on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. There is no charge or preregistration to attend the brown bag learning lunches. These are open to the public as a way to get to know LLI. We also offer local, regional and international travel opportunities, common interest groups, a New Horizons Band, and attend events at the Forbes Center for Performing Arts.
