Osher Lifelong Learning Institute Giving Initiatives


The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Cincinnati, or OLLI at UC, began in 1990 and is one of the oldest, largest, and most successful programs for active adults in the U.S.

Our mission is to provide outstanding opportunities for lifetime learning and social interaction to the mature residents of Greater Cincinnati. Classes are open to anyone age fifty and older at four central locations, including UC’s main campus. Our expert teachers lead about 100 courses each quarter in a relaxed, informal environment without tests or grades.

Though we are predominantly volunteer-driven, our success has allowed us to add a full-time program director and a full-time administrative secretary. However, continued growth for OLLI at UC depends on maintaining and enhancing the quality of our program.

Therefore, your support is essential for our continued success!

*OLLI courses are offered for free as part of the McMicken Society level benefit package!
