PILLAR's Story

PILLAR Institute for Lifelong Learning is the only independent lifelong learning institute in the Pikes Peak region.  It is a volunteer-driven membership organization that is open to all adults.   PILLAR produces over 300 liberal arts and science lifelong learning opportunities each year for those young at heart.   In addition, there are community lectures by community leaders, Living History portrayals, Reader's Theater performances, day tours and extended trips. 

 

PILLAR was originally known as the Peak Institute of Living, Learning and Rejuvenation.  It was founded in March of 1998 and was originally an institute for learning in retirement supported by Pikes Peak Community College and inspired by Elderhostel (now Road Scholar).  In 1999, PILLAR opted to become an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit.   That first year 9 classes were developed.

 

Now in its 21th year, PILLAR has spread learning throughout the Pikes Peak region.   PILLAR is partnered with many local organizations who appreciate lifelong learning.
