Rock Valley College’s Center for Learning in Retirement (CLR) will not be relocating at this time and will continue to operate at its current location at 3350 Bell School Road.
RVC Board of Trustees members had previously discussed options to relocate the CLR classes to the College’s main campus and sell the property on Bell School Road. At Tuesday night’s regular board meeting, trustees agreed not to move forward with relocating the CLR program at this time, however, the program will continue to be evaluated to make sure it is fiscally sustainable.
For over 20 years, Rock Valley College has proudly supported the CLR, a membership program for older adult learners. With over 1,300 members age 50+, CLR is one of the largest and most successful lifelong learning institutes in the nation. It has grown from offering just five classes in 1993 to offering over 300 in 2017.
The CLR’s mission is to provide quality lifelong learning for members 50 years and older through diverse educational, cultural, and social opportunities. CLR makes a difference in people’s lives by expanding their minds with knowledge, providing diverse opportunities for personal growth, promoting connections with other people who share similar interests, and allowing for lots of fun along the way. In addition to classes, trips, and social events, CLR offers Special Interest Groups, which meet on a regular basis for continued learning and enjoyment.
