The OLLI Spring online classes are in session and going well.

We have made the decision to CANCEL the OLLI Summer Mini Term. Those classes need to be conducted face-to-face, and we felt that this was the best decision for the safety of our members. We are hoping to move most of these classes to the Fall/Winter terms in hopes that we will be able to have in-person classes once again.

Thank you for understanding during this difficult time.

Please contact Brittany at bthomass@aum.edu if you wish to participate in the classes/opportunities below.

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) Program designed for adults age 50+ who are retired.  We offer an impressive selection of classes that promote personal growth, health and wellness, educational enrichment, and new friendships.  Classes are offered on an eight week fall term, seven week winter term, seven week spring term, and four week mini-summer term basis.  Some topics covered include, literature, history, crafts, dance, finance, nature, computer, and writing.  Course styles vary from guest lecture series, class discussion, to instructor-led.  Most classes are taught by OLLI members who volunteer their time and talents.  OLLI courses are non-degree courses, and they require no homework, tests, or entrance exams.  OLLI members participate for the sheer joy of learning.

Teach for OLLI

Are you interested in teaching a course for OLLI at AUM? We are always looking for teachers/instructors for classes. Our OLLI Instructors are non-paid and volunteer their time to teach.

The benefit of teaching for OLLI is that instructors' class term fees are waived if they take classes during a term that they are teaching. Not only do our instructors gain the benefit of free access to take classes; they enjoy teaching and making new friendships.
