UW-Green Bay’s Lifelong Learning Institute offers free ‘Intro Events’ to encourage people to never stop learning


Green Bay, WI — The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) members and volunteers are hosting “Intro Events” in Green Bay and Manitowoc. The events are free and don’t require registration, just curiosity and the drive to never stop learning.

Wednesday, July 17, 10 a.m.

The Weidner, Fort Howard Hall, 2420 Nicole Drive, Green Bay

Thursday, July 18, 10 a.m.

Manitowoc Campus, Room H102, 705 Viebahn Street, Manitowoc

LLI was created over thirty years ago to promote learning for the fun of it and is the largest program of its kind in the state.

University faculty, experts in their fields and passionate enthusiasts with wide interests, teach classes during the day in a variety of formats to members. Most classes are in-person with an additional mix of online classes and local tours. Classes may be one day or multiple days. True to its university roots, members enroll July 31 for the fall semester and are eligible to take a minimum of 15 classes.

LLI’s program specialist interacts with a determined taskforce of volunteers, including an elected board and committee chairs. “LLI represents a very committed group of volunteers,” says Heidi Jahnke, UW-Green Bay Lifelong Learning Institute’s program specialist. “They really care about our members and want to offer classes that capture their imaginations and respond to what’s happening in the world.”

The Lifelong Learning Institute is sponsored by the Division of Continuing Education and Workforce Training offering access to education at life’s every stage.
