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

The 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” for 25 years. 

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.

Fall 2021 programming and registration

This Fall, MVILR classes will be held in person in classrooms and at satellite locations from Sept. 20 to Nov. 12. Courses range in format from large lectures to small discussions taught by volunteer facilitators, members, and guest professionals who enjoy sharing their expertise, talents, interests, and enthusiasm for lifelong learning.
