Welcome to OLLI
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Michigan was established to encourage adults to continue their learning long after formal schooling is done. The Institute’s popular programs help mature adults to rediscover the piquancy of learning — the joy of discovery and feelings of accomplishment that are unencumbered by tests, grades, or drills.

This year’s programs feature:

six lecture series totaling 40 presentations, with average attendance over 250 people;

more than 100 study groups on a wide variety of topics;

casual, friend-producing programs on evenings and weekends — well-suited to people not yet retired;

day-long travel ventures to midwestern venues.
