Fall Semester 2021
We have resumed in-person classes! During COVID, we were forced to move our class offerings online for the last two semesters. We received very positive comments about our online classes from our local LLI members and from a good number of people from out of the area, including out of state. LLI will now offer the following types of classes:
  • In-person Classes in the communities of Green Bay, Manitowoc, Marinette and Sheboygan and surrounding areas 
  • Live, online via Zoom 
  • Pre-recorded lectures 
  • Outdoor classes 
  • Tours

Classes Offered In-person, Live Online, Recorded and Outdoor
Online classes have the added benefit of being accessible whether you are local, visiting the grandchildren, snowbirding in the south, or wherever you may be!
LLI is a non-profit program and is part of UW-Green Bay’s Division of Continuing Education and Community Engagement.
