The Humanities Institute for Lifelong Learning (HILL) offers opportunities for adult education to residents of the Greater Capital District of New York. HILL provides six-week Fall and Spring semesters with courses taught by distinguished faculty from across the region.



The HILL Program and Covid-19


Due to the continuing threat from Covid-19, the HILL Committee has decided to cancel the fall, 2020 semester at the Delmar Reformed Church. While we hope to resume our normal program for the spring, 2021 semester, that decision will be determined by the status of the virus over the next several months.


Instead, as a service to the HILL community, we will offer two popular courses this fall online through Zoom, free of charge for the fall semester. Details, including descriptions and schedules, for these courses, will be forthcoming on this site, through a mailing to be sent later in the summer. We will provide directions about how you can access these courses online through Zoom.


The two courses are:

The Elections of 2020, Bruce Miroff, SUNY, Albany

Iíll be Seeing You: The Life and Music of Billie Holiday, Seton Hawkins, Jazz at Lincoln Center


While we deeply regret having to cancel our regular classes, HILL is determined to continue its mission of providing high quality and unique educational and cultural offerings in the broad field of humanities. Our goal to offer lifelong learning opportunities for people living in the capital district remains the same.
