Lifelong Learning Institute began in 1996 as Learning in Retirement under the auspices of Jack Price, Executive Director of the Charlotte County Foundation, now known as the Charlotte Community Foundation.  Some of the initial instructors included Vernon Peeples and Lindsay Williams. The first classes were held at the Freeman House but eventually moved to the new Edison Community College Charlotte campus in 1998. In 2005, LIR changed its name to Lifelong Learning Institute, incorporated itself as not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization and forged an even closer relationship with the newly named Edison State College. In 2007, goals and bylaws were changed to more accurately reflect the revised mission of offering lifelong learning opportunities for adults in the Charlotte County area. During the 2007-2008 year, more than 800 participants took advantage of 37 classes, three field trips, a series of four distinguished speaker lectures and a monthly book club. While activities are available to everyone in the community, FRIENDS, –a paid patron organization—offers special privileges and discounts and helps foster the growth and development of the organization’s programming. Lifelong Learning Institute’s goal is to foster interest in continuing education among adults, to offer quality classes and programs in a campus atmosphere in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, personal finance and technology as well as providing a variety of educational opportunities outside the classroom , while cooperating with other organizations to support the mission of the program.

Lifelong Learning Institute is a member of the
