Garrett Institute for Lifelong Learning

Garrett Institute for Lifelong Learning

If you have a curious mind and love learning, please join this like-minded group. There are no entrance requirements, no tests and we do not grade - this is learning just for the fun of it!


GILL is a member driven organization whose mission is to enrich lives by offering a wide variety of stimulating educational, cultural, and social programs geared toward a diverse community of adults primarily 50 + years, but open to all.


GILL is administered by its own Board of Directors, run in affiliation with the Continuing Education and Workforce Development division of Garrett College, supported through membership and program fees. Members work together to determine the interests and needs of the group. A program committee is then charged with the tasks of bringing the class to fruition- finding instructors, defining the scope of curriculum and other logistical duties.
