OLLI's Winter/Spring term 2019 equal opportunity registration period closed on Friday, 11 January. OLLI registration continues online, in person, and by U.S. Mail on a first-come-first-serve basis for events that are not full.

Lotteries have been conducted for events that were over subscribed at the end of the equal opportunity registration period and email messages were sent out Monday afternoon, 14 January, confirming registration status. Individuals who did not get into a specific event have been placed on a waiting list for the event and refunds for the fees paid will be made over the next several days.

OLLI's Journey to Freedom Day Trip happened on July 10th.

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 275 people;
  • more than 150 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.

30 years of service to adult learners ages 50+
