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 in the company of your peers.
OLLI West classes are held at Jefferson Unitarian Church, 14350 West 32nd Avenue - approximately one mile west of I-70 on the south side of 32nd Avenue. Classes are held Monday through Friday - morning classes are from 9:30-11:30 am and afternoon classes are from 1:00-3:00 pm. Most classes are eight weeks long (one class per week) - some are shorter (i.e., 3-4 weeks) and some are one-time presentations.

There are three OLLI at DU locations: Central, West and South.
