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:  Winter 2015 Book, Winter 2015 Calendar, and Winter 2015 Registration and Waiver

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


Who is eligible to join or attend programs?

Membership and programs are open to anyone interested in pursuing intellectual, recreational, and/or social activities. More information

Important Information:

NCLL Membership Dues for the 2014-2015 year will be $30. Also, there will be a charge for most classes; $3 for members and $8 for nonmembers. See the Chair's letter for details.


What are NCLL interest groups?

Initiated and managed by NCLL members, interest groups function independently of NCLL, but we want to encourage folks to get together around particular activities they enjoy.  On-going interest groups include Astronomy, Geocaching/GPS, Bridge, Lunch Out Together, and Walking/XC-Skiing. Learn more

214: "The Organ Transplant Experience"

This program, held Wednesday, October 8 in the new Jamrich Hall, was very successful!

"I am still on a high from my visit to Marquette. Thank you all so very much for supporting “The Transplant Experience” presentation last Wednesday night with your ideas, planning, coordination, attendance, promotion, support, and for making yourselves available to meet Racheal and her family the next day at breakfast and in the ICU when she visited. For those who were not able to get involved or be present, Racheal is organ donor Sanaz Nezami’s double lung recipient." ~ Wendy J. Murdak, Hospital Development Specialist, UWHealth
