Welcome to Lifelong Learning at the University of Central Missouri for the 2016-2017 school year!

August 24, 2016 marks the beginning of the 7th year of programming for Lifelong Learning at UCM (LLL).
Each year, the LLL board produces two semesters of engaging, educational programs available for all community members. Programs feature experts from many fields and are designed to appeal to people from a variety of backgrounds and interests.
LLL is one of the University of Central Missouri's investments in the culture and education of mid-Missouri residents. It is the product of a dedicated group of volunteers and wouldn't be possible without the support of an eager audience. If you've been in one of our audiences before, I say thank you on behalf of the board. If you haven't, come join us and you'll see just how entertaining and enriching our programs can be.
Kyle Constant
Lifelong Learning Chair


At the University of Central Missouri, LLL is supported by Extended Studies, and is affiliated with the Alumni Association, the Emeriti Association, and the James C. Kirkpatrick Library. In addition, the Trails Regional Library is a community affiliate.

The LLL motto is: “Community programs for continued learning for all.”  We look forward to seeing you at future programs.  All programs are free and open to the public.
