The Bucknell Institute for Lifelong Learning (BILL) invites you to explore a broad range of educational and intellectual opportunities for adult learners in our region and beyond. Keep mentally active in a relaxed and congenial setting where stimulating programs expose you to new ideas and interesting and sometimes controversial topics. Share your ideas and life experiences in a mutually supportive environment where you learn without concern for tests, grades or requirements other than participation. Whatever your prior educational experience, these programs only require curiosity and an interest in learning, all life long.

Required COVID-19 Precautions For Attending In-Person Classes And Events

Attendance at any public event involves certain unavoidable risks such as exposure to or infection by transmissible diseases, viruses and other illnesses (including, but not limited to, COVID-19 and its variants). Your presence at BILL events, including classes, indicates your assumption of any and all such risk as well as your agreement to adhere to those policies intended to mitigate the spread of transmissible illnesses. As a member of our community or guest, it is your responsibility to practice basic health, safety and sanitation measures. BILL prohibits your attendance at in-person events if you are symptomatic of any commonly spread transmissible illness.

Masking at in-person events will be optional; please respect the decision of those who choose to mask. BILL will follow CDC recommendations concerning vaccination. The CDC (July 6, 2023) recommends that everyone stay up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines unless they have a medical exception. Being "up to date" requires your having received at least 1 updated (bivalent) Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. If you have had a COVID vaccine since Sept. 2, 2022, you have received the updated (bivalent) vaccine.

If a reformulated vaccine addressing new variants becomes available before or during the fall 2023 BILL term, that new vaccine can substitute for the current updated (bivalent) vaccine. This new fall 2023 vaccine will not be required if it is not widely available before the BILL fall term begins.

These COVID precautions are subject to change as conditions change.
