Get to Know the Lifelong Learning Institute
The Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) is a longstanding Institution at Nova Southeastern University (NSU). Founded in 1977, the LLI serves lifelong learning passions of retired adults in Broward County. The LLI, which is a center in the College of Osteopathic Medicine, is located on NSU's Davie campus. The LLI was founded to complete the NSU dream of education spanning a whole lifetime, from preschool to older-adult learning.
Through a unique, inviting environment, the LLI offers challenging educational lectures and social opportunities to connect with other like-minded individuals through field trips and NSU special events. LLI members can take advantage of opportunities to audit classes at the university. Such experiences offer true intergenerational learning while sitting side by side with NSU current students, sharing and learning from each other.
Many LLI members are retired professionals such as lawyers, doctors, business people, and teachers, or just active people who want to keep learning. Campus membership is about 50 percent female and 50 percent male with an age range from 50 to 90 and an average age of 75. But since when does a number define you?
Our main academic calendar runs from October through May. Classes are offered Monday through Thursday, two times a day. The LLI offers a slightly reduced schedule during the summer months. Some members attend all classes every day, while others select those that best match their personal interests and schedules.
Since the LLI believes in a total mind, body, spirit approach, a fitness program is offered in our classroom twice a week at no cost to our members. We sincerely appreciate Family Home Health Services for sponsoring this effort.
