Relationship with Glendon

While there is no formal affiliation between Glendon and the LLIR, we have enjoyed a close cooperation over the years. Our Academic Consultant is on staff at Glendon and many of the instructors are Glendon professors as well.

LLIR members have access to Glendon libraries, cafeteria, art gallery, other college facilities and special events.

LLIR members are encouraged to make voluntary contributions to the ‘Friends of Glendon’, a fund that assists needy students on the campus with grants, loans and bursaries. Over the years, LLIR has been responsible for contributions in excess of $600,000. Here’s a letter from Glendon in response to your donations. For more information on Friends of Glendon, see this website www.friendsofglendon.com
