Learn • Live • Move • Think • Socialize • Create with us! 

MVILR logoThe Mohawk Valley Institute for Learning in Retirement (MVILR) is a non-profit organization that has provided opportunities for local seniors to “learn, live, grow, move, think, socialize, and create” since 1996.

MVILR has partnered with MVCC's Center for Corporate and Community Education to continue providing local retirees with rich learning opportunities without homework, exams, or grades. MVILR is now located at MVCC's Rome Campus, which features large dedicated classrooms for its courses, state-of-the-art special event spaces, and free parking. Class registration begins 25 calendar days before the start of the first class of the semester.
