Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI)

You can help enhance programs and opportunities for our lifelong learners.

Your gift to OLLI will help foster accessible lifelong learning, individual growth, and social connection for adult learners age 50+ by providing opportunities to enrich the intellectual, social, and cultural lives of members, regardless of their educational backgrounds.

We offer noncredit courses, special topic lectures, theater outings, field trips, travel opportunities, walking tours, and other social events in a friendly, welcoming setting both in-person and online. As part of the Gerontology Program within the Manning School of Nursing and Health Sciences, we are only one of five OLLIs in the country that report similarly through health science units or geriatrics/gerontology programs or divisions. This uniqueness allows us to tap into the expertise and resources provided by the faculty and students of these programs.
