Going, going ... Time waits for no one
Happy spring! As we enjoy longer days and the glorious warmth of these first sunny days of spring, we're reminded that our registration will soon close. You have until midnight Wednesday, March 24, to secure your virtual seat in this history-making semester. 
On our website's home page, you'll find the instructions and link to register for classes online. It is now too late to register by mail. If you require assistance getting registered before Wednesday's deadline, please call the ILR office at 513-529-8500.
Spring catalog

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe

With so many great classes to choose from this semester, you'll have a hard time deciding just how many you can fit in. We suggest letting the housework slide and filling your schedule to your heart's content.  
The ILR Spring 2021 Course Catalog wasn't printed or mailed this semester due to the financial implications of the pandemic and the additional time and workload required to move the semester online. You'll find the PDF catalog an easy-to-navigate alternative.

Age friendly photo

Miami recognized as Age-Friendly University

After a rigorous process of preparation and application, Miami has just been named as the newest member of the Age-Friendly University (AFU) network. As one of fewer than 50 AFUs in the nation, Miami stands in good company with other universities who make ageless learning a priority. Read the article

Call for proposals

Well, not quite the proposal we had in mind, although we'll love your course proposal just as much. While the spring semester isn't yet underway, we're actively planning for fall 2021 and will be accepting course proposalsdiamonds optional—until May 3rd. Everyone has a passion, hobby, profession, or skill worth sharing. Submit your ILR fall 2021 course proposal by May 3rd. Chances are, the answer will be yes!

Tech team
Hall of Fame worthy
They've been in spring training for months, but they won't see a parade, cheerleaders, or even a pep rally in their honor. Yet they'll continue to be the reason for ILR's virtual success. Supporting our instructors and students, you'll see at least one ILR Tech Team member in each of our spring classes. A baker's dozen this semester, our team includes Paul Allen, Sarah Baker, Charles Ganelin, Alfredo Huerta, Judy Macke, Sante Matteo, Jerry Riesenberg, Marilyn Ruther, Mike Ruther, Tom Schaber, Rob Schorman, Robin Seaver, and Pat Sidley. They make making it all work look easy. Be sure to give them a virtual high five. Yay team!
