Composed of seasoned learners from all walks of life, OLLI members pursue learning for pure pleasure:  No tests! No grades! No age cap!  Our motto is Where Learning Never Retires and the OLLI experience proves it.  This member-led organization of nearly 800 volunteers is committed to the concept that mature adults learn best when they are active in their own learning processes.  Students who wish to become more involved can propose topics for new courses, facilitate study groups, volunteer as weekly discussion leaders, or serve on any one of a number of committees.

The Bernard Osher Foundation supports a growing national network of more than 100 Lifelong Learning  Institutes across the country. Join us for a variety of learning experiences, for the pleasure of learning, and the spirit of friendship.
