The mission of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Arizona State University is to provide non-credit, university-quality learning experiences for adults ages 50+ through diverse classes, campus-based learning opportunities, and civic engagement initiatives. We are a community of engaged learners discovering the joy of lifelong learning at its best . . . no tests, grades, or educational requirements!
The Bernard Osher Foundation in San Francisco was created in 1977 by California businessman Bernard Osher. The foundation collaborates with universities nationwide to offer intellectually stimulating learning opportunities for older adults.
Members who leave their Arizona homes for the season can keep their learning going by attending other OLLI programs. You can quickly locate OLLIs around the country, as well as find information, resources, and lifelong learning connections on the National Resource Center for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes. Headquartered at Northwestern University, the Center serves as the hub for the current network of 120 lifelong learning institutes throughout the nation.
