The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Virginia offers educational opportunities and intellectual enrichment to active adults in the community. The institute is member-directed and draws upon its members’ resources, as well as other academic and community resources, to organize courses and other educational activities. In this stimulating environment, members acquire new knowledge, explore ideas, exercise creativity, and share interests and expertise with others.

Established in 2001 as the Jefferson Institute for Lifelong Learning (JILL), JILL received a grant from the Bernard Osher Foundation and joined over 123 OLLIs nationwide in June 2007.
