Welcome to the Lifelong Learning in Retirement at the Highlands LLRHDM.COM website!

LLRH is a community of retired active people, who enjoy learning and have opportunities to discuss ideas with professors and neighbors. They keep their brains active by engaging in novel subjects and going on interesting field trips.

LLRH is actively involved with the faculty and students at The University of Arizona’s various departments: astronomy, biosciences, music, dance, entomology, hydrology, agriculture, etc.

Usually, the classes are held in the Highlands Clubhouse. The LLRH Board of Directors discussed the risk of Coronavirus in May and decided to ZOOM eight courses for the FALL 2020 semester to your home.

We hope to return to our normal schedule of twenty courses and three field trips in the Spring semester.

Browse thru our website pages and enjoy the photos of our many members. You will see happy learners who are inquisitive, curious, and enthusiastic.

Upcoming Courses

The Coronavirus Pandemic has created social distancing practices to limit the spread of this highly infectious and deadly disease to critically at-risk populations, namely the LLRH members and presenters.

The LLRH Board of Directors met on May 11 by ZOOM and decided to ZOOM eight courses and postpone the scheduled 16 courses and 4 field trips until the Spring 2021 semester.  UA CATALYSTS FOR CHANGE AND GREAT DECISIONS WILL BE ZOOM meetings. 

UA Catalysts For Change

“Our world continues to change, with some aspects of our lives changing more rapidly than others. The 2020 UA installment in the College of Science Lecture Series explores the catalysts – both positive and negative – influencing the pace of change in four areas of science. Advances in our understanding of climate, space, artificial intelligence, and genetic engineering will have profound implications for how we will live in the next 20 years and beyond”. Excerpt from UA postcard.

2020 Great Decisions Of The Foreign Polcy Association

Build your knowledge of current international developments with civil discussions. One person talks and everyone listens. Members are invited to share their thoughts, insights, and opinions.

Our discussion group is registered with the Foreign Policy Association in NYC.  The LLRH Great Decisions group meets four times in the spring and four times in October and November. A DVD will be shown at the beginning of each meeting.

Reading the 2020 Great Decisions Briefing Book prepares the participants with information about the topic and helps the members to participate fully in the one hour discussion.
