  • About the Osher Foundation

    • The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Denver is a membership program designed for men and women age 50 and over, who wish to pursue lifelong learning in a relaxed non-competitive atmosphere.  There are no tests, no grades, no academic requirements - just a desire for learning and a penchant to be curious.

      Thanks to the generosity of the The Bernard Osher Foundation, OLLI at the University of Denver joins a network of 120 Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes across the United States that are meeting the needs of older learners who want to learn simply for the joy of learning and personal fulfillment.

      Read more: www.osherfoundation.org.

      OLLI needs believers like Bernard Osher. The development and delivery of quality educational programs for 50+ adults is important for sustaining quality of life and healthy minds. If you would like to help fund scholarships, programming or our research, please contact us at our office, 303-871-3090.

  • General Information


  • We Love Volunteers!

    • OLLI members and volunteer facilitators are the heartbeat of the institute and are the reason it will thrive while keeping the fees low.

      Volunteering is a direct way for members to have input into the decisions and direction of OLLI.

      Volunteering is a rewarding and stimulating experience, and another way to meet new people.

      If you are interested in helping out on a committee or just one time at an event, contact Paul Simon, OLLI East Manager, at paul.simon@du.edu for more information.  We need you!
