There are 119 OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) programs represented in all the United States 50 states and are part of a college or university.
They are funded in part by The Bernard Osher Foundation. Participants of OLLI programs are known as members and pay an annual membership fee. All OLLI programs offer a wide variety of intellectually stimulating, university-level, noncredit courses and learning opportunities for people 50 or better.
OLLI programs have been becoming members of LERN as they are being required to reduce their percentage of funded dollars, thus needing to utilize lifelong learning industry best practices.
I have had the opportunity to work with and learn from numerous OLLI programs.
