Summer classes for Osher Lifelong Learning Institute Program are set to take place Monday through Thursday at the University of Alabama Gadsden Center on Broad Street.
OLLI at UA is a membership program that is member planned and member managed.
Member participation and volunteerism are the backbone for the success of OLLI at UA.
This new academic program provides mature adults with opportunities for intellectual stimulation, cultural development, and social interaction.
OLLI at UA educational programs are centered around courses that are developed by and often taught by its members, who volunteer their time and talents to share their knowledge and interests with other members.
