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:  Fall 2014 BookFall 2014 Calendar, and Fall 2014 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

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.
