Molloy Institute for Lifelong Learning

Alternative Text

The Molloy University Institute for Lifelong Learning (MILL) program is a membership program. Individuals of all ages are welcome, as long as there is a willingness to participate in learning and to maintain a rigorous mind. Members share a love of learning, and leading interesting, stimulating and satisfying lives. MILL limits the size of the membership to keep a genial and warm atmosphere among the group, promoting a close rapport with other learners, faculty and presenters. MILL members are a culturally and religiously diverse group.

MILL members are entitled to audit undergraduate credit classes on a space available basis (Rockville Centre MILL Groups only). Participation is encouraged regardless of your previous level of formal education and scholarships are available. Members are invited to present one session to their group each year. By leading one session on current events, book or movie review, or a personal experience, the member is able to feel closer to the group and the group with the presenter. Trips are scheduled throughout the year.
