Where learning never ends!

At Waubonsee, we believe learning is a lifelong process, so we proudly support the Lifelong Learning Institute, an open membership organization for adults age 50 and older who are actively engaged in the pursuit of knowledge. In our stimulating peer-learning environments, members plan, lead and participate in courses, course-related trips and social events. LLI members are encouraged to volunteer in some capacity in support of the organization. It's easy to join and only $25 per year – download the Membership/Registration form (pdf) to get started.


To provide our membership with a defined and member-generated framework for life-enriching, dynamic educational experiences through lifelong learning programs.


To be a self-sustaining and self-governing community of active, mature adults offering a diverse and intellectually stimulating array of noncredit educational offerings in a wide variety of academic disciplines.

  • Continued learning 
  • Intellectual inquiry
  • Social interaction
  • Active member participation in lifelong learning.
