OLLI News

Interested in Leading A Study Group? Do you have a talent, skill, or burning desire to share a favorite topic with like-minded individuals? You don’t need to be an expert to lead an OLLI study group — you need only have the interest in a topic and the self-confidence to offer leadership for a learning experience. We ask that Study Group proposals for Winter/Spring 2017-18 be turned in by November 1, 2017. More information is available here.










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:

Seven lecture series totaling 43 presentations, with average attendance over 250 people;
more than 140 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.
