Institute for Learning in Retirement

SUNY Potsdam is exploring the possibility of developing an Institute for Learning in Retirement Program for retired and semi retired persons in the North Country. The institute would be associated with the College. Similar to Elderhostel programs, its primary purpose would be to offer learning opportunities for its members. The members themselves would suggest and choose the topics or subjects for learning. SUNY Potsdam is now surveying St. Lawrence County residents on the feasibility of this type of Institute for Learning in Retirement. Todd Moe spoke with Nancy Hess, with the Office of Continuing Education at SUNY Potsdam, who says the program at this point is still in the development stage, with committees being formed to help run the institute.

For more information about SUNY Potsdam's ILR program, contact Nancy Hess at (315) 267-2168 or (800) 458-1142.  Go to full article
