Welcome to OLLI

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) is a close-knit community of adults, ages 50+, who believe in lifelong learning, engagement and exploration. Our not-for-credit courses and workshops include art history, film, history, politics and economics, literature and language, and science. There are no mandatory exams, assignment or grades. We invite you to continue your journey of lifelong learning through our courses, lectures, and clubs. 

This summer OLLI is offering an amazing range of courses, including John Rothmann's Around the Political World, Dave Radlauer's Forgotten Stars of the swing era, a four-week Wellness course, plus Broadway, Richard Bell and Oak Dowling. There is so much to choose from. You won't be disappointed, and for $250, you can have unlimited access to every course we offer.


I love the recorded Zoom classes. The availability of recordings is timely and so convenient when I’m unable to Zoom in real time. OLLI instructors are extraordinary and class content is superb. Plus, Premium Membership is such a good value. With it, 3-4 classes per session are actually very inexpensive!
