The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Virginia is a 501C3 that relies on donations from the community to assist in offsetting our operational costs, office space rent, staff overhead and the like. Please consider donating to support our initiatives in lifelong learning. 

OLLI at UVA offers educational opportunities and intellectual enrichment to adults in the community. The institute 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 124 other OLLIs nationwide in June 2007.
