Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI)

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is a vibrant community of adults, aged 50 and above, who are intent on being exposed to both new fields of knowledge as well as traditional disciplines. The Institute offers a wide range of courses that are taught without examination or grades for which instructors are urged to pursue courses they have long wished to teach, prompted by their specialized areas of research. OLLI also hosts weekly lecture series, special events for the community, and provides an open forum for the expression of new and innovative ideas. Visiting scholars are encouraged to consider proposing a formal or informal speaking opportunity with the OLLI, bringing both their diverse cultural backgrounds and specialized fields of knowledge into this dynamic educational forum.
