Welcome to the Learning in Retirement Association (LIRA) Website.
LIRA is a multi-faceted educational program for the retired and semi-retired, for which there are neither educational nor age requirements. LIRA's philosophy is to provide, at a modest cost, college-level learning experiences for all its members, regardless of previous educational background.
LIRA is a partnership with the UMass Lowell Office of Alumni Relations and Office of Community Relations.
