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. 

Winter 2022 programs will be conducted online using Zoom.

The OLLI offices, located in the Turner Senior Resource Center, are open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am-5pm. Masks are required, regardless of vaccination status per University policy.

30+ years of service to adult learners ages 50+

Zoom is a video conferencing platform that provides high definition, interactive collaboration tools for communication. OLLI has been using Zoom for Study Groups and Lectures since 2020 and will continue using Zoom in Winter/Spring 2022.

You will receive a Zoom Meeting ID and link specific to your OLLI event by e-mail before the event begins. This information is also available in OLLI's online Course Catalog for events for which you have registered as well as for events that are free and do not require registration.
