Lyceum is a Lifelong-Learning Institute (LLI) for adult learners over 50 years of age. Affiliated with Binghamton University and Road Scholar, we have over 600 local community members. Lyceum members are intellectually curious and seek to increase their knowledge of themselves and the world around them.
Lyceum offers its students an opportunity to learn from and among their peers. Classes are held during the day, evening or occasionally weekends, and typically run for a maximum of four weeks. Some courses are designed for listeners, while the majority of classes allow for and encourage discussion and participation. Course leaders are current or retired faculty, specialists or members who as "amateurs" have pursued their interests in some depth.
In addition to classes, Lyceum offers day trips to exciting locales and ethnic dinners that provide opportunities to socialize and sample foods from other countries and cultures.
We encourage members to help make Lyceum a participatory organization by sharing in policy-making, proposing courses, and assisting in class arrangements and refreshments.
(Confidential scholarship assistance is available for membership fees. Contact the Lyceum program director for more information.)
