About the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
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.
About OLLI West
OLLI West is one of three OLLI sites in the Denver Metro area. Our OLLI West site is in two locations:
We have three terms - Fall, Winter & Spring. Most classes are held one day a week for eight weeks - Monday-Friday - with morning classes at 9:30-11:30 am and afternoon classes at 1:00-3:00 pm.

OLLI members may participate in as many classes as desired at any of the three OLLI sites - Central, West & South (contingent upon space availability) for $100 per term.
