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.

If Jefferson County Public Schools are closed due to the weather - OLLI West is closed. If there is a late start for Jeffco Schools, it generally does not affect the morning class start time for OLLI West.

Through the gracious generosity of an OLLI West member (who wishes to remain anonymous), we now have a well-funded OLLI West Scholarship Fund. The fund will assist those who wish to participate in OLLI West classes, but are financially unable. If you, or someone you know, would like more information, please contact Dianne Howie at (720) 648-9345 or firstname.lastname@example.org. All inquiries and scholarships will remain confidential.
OLLI West Spring class descriptions are now available! Check out the classes on the Classes & Syllabi tab above.
Winter HOT TOPICS LUNCHEON - IS FULL! Please do not send in a reservation check - it will be returned to you.
