What is the NCLL?

The Northern Center for Lifelong Learning (NCLL) is an organization that plans and offers informal educational programs and activities to enrich the daily lives of its members and others through mini-courses, regular programs, outdoor activities and social events. Member directed, self-supporting and nonprofit, it is affiliated with Northern Michigan University and the Road Scholar Elderhostel Institute Network.

When and how often are the programs offered?

More than twenty new courses are offered each term - fall, winter, and spring/summer. Both daytime and evening programs are available. For more information, see the following: Summer/Fall 2015 Book, Summer/Fall 2015 Calendar, and Summer/Fall 2015 Registration and Waiver. 

Please notice that some events require pre-registration and prepayment.

What are NCLL interest groups?
