    ILR promotes learning and curiosity in retirement

    The Institute for Learning in Retirement, called the ILR, is a group of active seniors who are committed to life-long learning.  Membership is open to all who are retirement age without regard to race, religion, gender, color, or national origin.  

    Based at the Virginia Beach campus of Tidewater Community College, we enjoy intellectually stimulating lectures, discussion groups, social events, and trips.  

    While the pandemic alters our meeting together on campus, we continuedto enjoy intellectual experiences with classes delivered via Zoom.  So do not wait for Covid to disappear in order to meet our community of learners.

    For a yearly membership fee you will receive a quarterly schedule of our programs and events.  Classes, trips, discussion groups, and socials require registration and payment.  Read more to see if joining ILR might enrich your retirement life as well.

    Classes held at ATc

    The Advanced Technology Center on the TCC campus will be our temporary site while the seats in the Pungo Auditorium are replaced.  The ATC is located at the opposite side of campus near the Joint Use Library. Until further notice most classes will be held downstairs, but check your reminder emails for any changes.  The security person at the sign-in desk can also direct you.

    Enjoy learning new ideas and socializing with your ILR friends on campus or, if more convenient, zoom from home.
