Winter classes at Institute for Learning in Retirement


Registration is open for the Mohawk Valley Institute for Learning in Retirement’s (MVILR) four-week winter session.

Classes begin Monday, Jan. 24, and they will be held virtually, throughout the community, or at its new location, Mohawk Valley Community College’s Rome Campus, 1101 Floyd Ave.

Courses range in format from large lectures to small discussions taught by volunteer facilitators, members and guest professionals who enjoy sharing their expertise, talents, interests, and enthusiasm for lifelong learning.

A few examples from the 25 courses offered this session include: The Political Landscape for 2022 with John Zogby; Hollywood and History; The Android Phone; Selected Poetry and Prose of John Donne; Classic Japanese Film; Meditation and Yoga; and The Life and Work of Frédéric Chopin.
