The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Pittsburgh is a membership-based community of adults, age 50 and older, who are passionate about learning. Because there are no test, no grades, and no degree requirements, it is the perfect environment for exploring new topics with other interested adults.

OLLI members enjoy these learning options:

OLLI Courses

From politics to poetry, members choose from a rich array of stimulating noncredit courses taught by current and retired faculty as well as other community professionals.  

OLLI Study Groups

These small discussion groups provide a more relaxed learning environment to discuss topics from current events to writing and thrive on the active participation of members. 

Undergraduate Course Audit

Osher members can choose from among hundreds of intellectually challenging courses in the arts, social sciences, and natural sciences offered through the University of Pittsburgh Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences. 

OLLI Special Events

Lectures, informal discussions, tours, day trips, and travel provide additional outlets for learning, enjoyment, and meeting others with similar interests.
