Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI)
Satisfy your curiosity. Sharpen your mind. Share your passions. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Dominican University of California was designed for lifelong learners like you.
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 winter session, Mondays might be your favorite weekday rediscovering The Films of Humphrey Bogart. Or are you more interested in the mind-body-connection? Try the live Tai Chi class on Tuesdays. Actually, you don’t have to choose: You can explore it all from arts to economics.
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.
