Support the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute!
OLLI at UConn is a member-driven, community-responsive program offering non-credit learning experiences (courses, lectures, and special events) for older adults who want to engage socially and intellectually with their peers as teachers and learners who range in age from 50 to 98. The Institute has served over 1,500 individuals from over 80 cities and towns since its inception in 2007.
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Connecticut is an academic cooperative that provides older adults with opportunities for intellectual development, cultural stimulation and social interaction. Programming is centered around classes developed and taught by community members who share their knowledge and experience with members. The OLLI program also sponsors special events featuring noted authors, scholars and experts in respected fields.
Donations to OLLI directly support operational costs of programs. In the past, support has been provided to special projects such as an annual literary and art publication called Voices and Visions, a garden project that produces over 10,000 pounds of food for those in need in Greater Waterbury, and special lectures and events related to Arts and Culture.
