About Osher

Since the 1990s, the Lifelong Learning Institute, sponsored by the Osher Foundation, has created accessible and innovative learning environments with a special focus on participants 50 years of age and over. Learners from all backgrounds and educational levels enjoy the benefits of continuing their education through OLLI membership.

Choosing from a diverse collection of courses, learners can create their own personal development program, expand their views of the world and enrich their lives and communities. In addition to the HU, Virginia location there are 125 Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes (OLLIs) spanning all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Each is an independently operated lifelong learning initiative of its host college or university and is supported in part by The Bernard Osher Foundation.
