OLLI-UM Fall Kick-Off '22 scheduled for Wednesday, September 7th at Washtenaw Community College from 10:00am - 12:00pm.

Watch for more information in the coming weeks. 



Starting August 9 through September 7, the OLLI Bring a Friend campaign gives our members the chance to introduce OLLI programming to a friend. If the friend joins, the membership fee will be waived. This also includes past members who haven't participated in OLLI over the last two years. In addition, the OLLI member who brought their friend will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a free study group, lecture series, or a grand prize of a year’s worth of lectures (all lectures for that year)! Contact OLLI at (734) 998-9351 or olli.info@umich.edu to register your friend or for your friend to become a member.


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. 

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+

Announcements about OLLI programs as well as community events that may be of interest to OLLI members:

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. And, if you are signed in you can also see Zoom information on the payment History web page.
