OSHER Lifelong Learning Institute

OSHER Lifelong Learning Institute at Auburn University at Montgomery

About Us and Membership Benefits

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) Program is 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.
