About OLLI

OLLI Science Course

Rediscover the joy of learning!

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Cincinnati provides opportunities for lifetime learning and social interaction to the mature residents of Greater Cincinnati.

Join the more than 1,700 individuals each year who choose from hundreds of courses—from one-and-a-half-hour demonstrations to eight-week seminars—at various locations around town. Offerings range from such traditional college subjects as math, philosophy, creative writing, science, literature, and history to courses on financial planning and healthcare to such eclectic subjects as wine appreciation, opera, tai chi, and gardening.

And there are no tests or grades!

OLLI is open to everyone aged 50 or older. The only prerequisite is enthusiasm for learning. For a single payment of $85 per quarter, you may enroll in as many classes as you like. Most OLLI members take three or more. Classes meet in fall, winter, and spring. An additional series of seven lectures keeps our minds sharp during the summer months.

Come and be part of OLLI's vibrant learning community!

OLLI at UC functions on volunteer power. Consider sharing your passions and expertise by volunteering to moderate a course. Various committees do the much-needed work of running the program: Curriculum, Marketing, Special Events, and Friends of OLLI can all use new members with fresh ideas.
