Bucknell Institute for Lifelong Learning

Lamp post in downtown Lewisburg

The Bucknell Institute for Lifelong Learning (BILL) invites you to explore a broad range of educational and intellectual opportunities for residents of the Central Susquehanna Valley community. Keep mentally active by joining with like-minded people 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 a willingness to learn. 


Participation at in-person classes, presentations and receptions is limited to those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. "Fully vaccinated" means 2 weeks after the second dose in a two-dose vaccination series (Pfizer or Moderna) or 2 weeks after a one-dose vaccination (Johnson & Johnson). In order to lower the risk of Covid-19 transmission at in-person events, participants are also expected to wear a mask covering mouth and nose while attending courses or special presentations indoors, as is required according to the policies of Bucknell University and the Bucknell Institute for Lifelong Learning. Physical distancing may be possible in some classrooms but cannot be guaranteed due to space limitations.

Several courses taught on Zoom are available for those who have not been vaccinated and others interested in the topics. Some Special Presentations will be delivered via Zoom and when possible, recordings may be made of in-person programs, as well.
