Learn, Grow, and Connect with OLLI
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Minnesota (OLLI at the UMN) is a vibrant learning community for people aged 50+. Part of the College of Continuing and Professional Studies, OLLI belongs to a national network of Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes supported by the Bernard Osher Foundation.
Central to everything we do, our members are engaged, active learners for whom curiosity and the joy of learning are a given. In addition to offering hundreds of high-quality noncredit courses each year, OLLI is also host to intellectually stimulating social, cultural, and volunteer opportunities.
Our door is always open and you may join anytime. The annual membership fee is $300, and all memberships are valid for one year from the date of purchase.
At OLLI, everyone is welcome!
