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.

OLLI's Fall 2020 programs were, Winter/Spring 2021 programs are, and Fall 2021 programs will be conducted online using Zoom.

The OLLI offices are closed to the public during the pandemic, but you can reach OLLI staff by sending e-mail to (link sends e-mail) and by calling, 734-998-9351.
