CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) NOTICE

ALL OLLI IN-PERSON PROGRAMS CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

The University of Cincinnati announced the suspension of all face-to-face class meetings effective March 14, in response to the Governor’s announcement of a state of emergency to limit the spread of the corona virus (COVID-19).

The Executive Committee of the OLLI Board of Trustees voted to cancel all OLLI face-to-face programs and classes through June 30 in order to protect the health and wellbeing of all our members, staff, moderators, and other volunteers.

UPDATE: What’s Happening with OLLI?

Please know that OLLI’s staff and volunteer leadership are continuing to “meet” (online, of course). We are healthy and working to be here for you when we can return to the classroom. As a program of UC, we are fortunate to have the university’s scientific, medical, and professional guidance to navigate us through this unprecedented health emergency.

Online Classes: While we cannot meet in person, we are offering some programs via Cisco WebEx. You can find a link to download the app as well as detailed instructions on this page.

Summer Series: Plans are underway now to offer the OLLI Summer Series of six weekly presentations online. We will share more information as it becomes available.

Fall Term: We will make decisions about fall term in June. We will share more information as it becomes available.

Facebook: To see our recommendations for online learning and interaction, follow OLLI at University of Cincinnati on Facebook.

Tech Volunteers Needed

If you are computer savvy—and especially if you have experience using WebEx—we are looking for volunteers to assist other members who need help accessing online classes and to serve as technical support to online class moderators. If you want to help or find out more, send us an email at olli@uc.edu.
