For the 2020 Fall semester, ALI has decided to offer a combination of in-person classes (with social distancing) and online classes via ZOOM. In addition, for the first time in 12 years, we will not be holding a kick-off meeting for the semester. The classes will require a small non-refundable registration fee, but the classes themselves will be offered at no additional charge. See the list of classes below.
Adult Learners Institute classes are conducted in cooperation with Washtenaw Community College. Several classes will be offered with our partners, the Chelsea District Library and the Chelsea Senior Center, and will be FREE, but you must preregister for all classes (in-person or online) including the free ones.
