The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) is an organization for seasoned adults. Our curriculum committee develops courses for our members to take just for the fun of learning. We are currently working on classes for the upcoming semester. A class topic can cover areas in Art, Architecture, Computer, Technology, Social Media, Food/Beverages, Government, Politics, Economics, Health and Wellbeing, Geography, History, Leisure and Recreation, Literature, Philosophy, Religion, Science and Nature, Space and Planetary, Special Interest, Theatre, Film, Music and Hikes
If you are an expert in your field or an avid hobbyist we would love for you to consider conducting a course. Our past instructors have included current and retired U of A professors, distinguished community members, business leaders and other experts. Our instructors have left the class stating it is like no other teaching experience.
A little our courses. Our participants are engaged, avid listeners, who love to ask questions and learn about new and exciting topics and interests. Our semesters run closely with the UA schedule. We hold the majority of our classes at the Uptown-West campus or at Drake Airfield but are open to other locations. Our class size averages approximately 15 but we have had as many as 50+ in a class (special events have had up to 100 attendees). Our classes are one-session (app 2 – 3 hours) or multiple sessions (2-5 days over a span of weeks—each 2 – 3 hours long). Our fall semester runs from around the second full week of September through the second week of December. Our spring semester starts around the second full week of February and runs through the end of May.
