Lifespan Learning Institute is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing our community together to promote dialogue, understanding and lifelong learning.

Our conferences are designed to encourage the spaces where we meet, bringing together a broad spectrum of researchers, clinicians and teachers from a variety of racial, ethnic, national and religious backgrounds.
