Lifetime Learners Institute (LLI) is an independent nonprofit institute for lifelong learning within Norwalk Community College. Our purpose is to offer non-credit, educational programs for area residents aged 50 or older. We offer over 40 courses each Spring and Fall, taught by LLI facilitators, as well as daily events during a shorter Winter Session. Our 900 or more members come from all over Fairfield County. Member volunteers run LLI.

Norwalk Community College gives us a home, provides us with offices, meeting rooms, classrooms, services, use of the fine library and Wellness Center, help in many forms, advice when asked for, and the invaluable prestige of a large sheltering institute – making us feel a part of the College. Our members volunteer services to NCC, such as mentoring, library assistance, rush mailings, registration-day help, and participation in Foundation fundraising.
