Center for Learning in Retirement (CLIR)


Exercise your mind with good friends

UConn Extension‘s Center for Learning in Retirement (CLIR) provides meaningful and serious intellectual activities for retirees and other adults from all walks of life, conducted in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. There are no academic requirements.

CLIR classes are offered in two formats: single classes and courses. A single class consist of one and a half hours. A course consists of two or more classes scheduled in successive weeks.

All classes will be held at the Vernon Cottage on the Mansfield Depot Campus at the University of Connecticut. This is a change from previous arrangements because of extensive renovations of several cottages.

Soon we hope to have a ride-sharing program to accommodate non-drivers as well as to help members keep travel costs down.

Join CLIR today. New members are always welcome! If you would like to sample a class or two at no cost you are invited to do so.
