Since 1990, The Institute for LifeLong Learning for New Mexicans (LLL) has offered daytime academic-level education to stimulate the intellect and expand the knowledge of adults 50+ in the Albuquerque area. 

 

Our member-driven, volunteer-run structure allows us to keep quality high and fees low with no membership or processing fee. Anyone who enrolls becomes an LLL member for a year. 

 

To maintain our unique identity among the local adult-education scene, we offer academic-style courses of up to five two-hour sessions. They are limited to 35 or fewer students to allow for meaningful exchanges with instructors. We partner with local groups to present Performances+ -- a discounted performance plus lectures. Our field trips are usually limited to 20 students. 

 

All our offerings are taught by experts. Our instructors include professors and professionals working in or retired from their particular field, as well as professionals who have made an intensive study of a particular area as an avocation. 

 

LifeLong Learning does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion, ethnicity or sexual preference.
