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. If there is a change of venue for a particular class in a given session, it will be noted in the brochure and online in red alongside the class listing.
