Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UVA

Mission Statement:

Aware that an active mind is as necessary as social relationships and physical exercise to a full life, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Virginia offers educational opportunities and intellectual enrichment to adults in the community. OLLI draws upon its members, as well as other academic and community resources, to organize courses and other educational activities. In this stimulating environment, members may acquire knowledge, explore ideas, exercise creativity, and share interests and expertise with others.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Inclusion, & Racial Equity
