OLLI meets for three terms during the year, each term lasts eight weeks. The fall session begins in mid-September, the winter term begins in mid-January, and the spring term at the end of March. Each class meets weekly for two hours, (either in the morning or afternoon) for four, six or eight weeks. Special events may take place during or between terms, or on occasion in the summer.
Who teaches the Classes?
Most are facilitated by OLLI members who have the professional knowledge of or a scholarly interest in the subjects of the classes. Some are taught by retired faculty members, community and civic leaders and independent scholars. Others may take place at a museum, artist’s studio, or a theater where the resident professional teaches the class.
