EIU School of Extended Learning

Academy of Lifelong Learning

The purpose of the Academy is to provide all community members informal opportunities for non-credit learning. We offer a wide variety of low-cost, high-quality short courses and events that enable participants to enjoy learning in a relaxed environment. Members may audit full semester courses for in depth study with the Academy Pass. Our goal is to encourage learning and dialogue to help individuals advance their abilities to cope with the continuous change that surrounds us today.
