Noncredit Programs: The Lifelong Learning and Arts Institute programs

The Lifelong Learning program is evidence of IU Southeast’s commitment to the community and region which includes outreach with a broad set of offerings designed to promote growth, learning, and well-being throughout our lives. As a University, IU Southeast is well-positioned to contribute to the personal, intellectual, cultural, and professional development of all ages in our community.

In addition to the well-established Arts Institute, which offers private instruction in music and theatre, IU Southeast has expanded its non-credit programs to include classes for all ages.

The Arts Institute is a non-credit, community outreach and preparatory program under the umbrella of the Indiana University Southeast School of Arts & Letters and the IU Southeast  Lifelong Learning program. Since its inception in 1996 with grant funding from Indiana University, the Arts Institute has offered quality instruction in the arts for all ages. Private lessons are offered in keyboard, voice, and stringed, brass and wind instruments. Classes in  adult guitar, theatre, and vocal training are currently available. All classes are non-credit and are held on the IU Southeast campus in the Paul W. Ogle Cultural and Community Center. Most Arts Institute faculty members are on the IU Southeast faculty. Highly qualified local artists and educators also teach for the Arts Institute. These fine instructors hold degrees from respected institutions and bring extensive experience to our programs.
