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 spring, OLLI is offering an amazing range of courses, including Richard Bell's End of Empire course on a Monday evenings, Darren Zook's Cybersecurity 3, Douglas Kenning's History of Italy, and Jean Bowler's Fascism in America. There is so much to choose from. You won't be disappointed, and as a Session or Premium member you can have unlimited access to every course we offer.


OLLI has enriched my life for the last 12+ years and will continue to do so. Early on, classes were all in-person and I had never been on the beautiful Dominican campus. Discovering Dominican was in itself a treat, but then add the inspiring teachers and broad spectrum of subject matter. During Covid, OLLI a la zoom was a life saver to many of us. Much gratitude for OLLI Dominican.
