Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

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. Learn More.
