Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Denver (OLLI at DU)

 The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Denver (OLLI at DU) is a membership program designed for adults 50 and over, who wish to pursue lifelong learning in a relaxed non-competitive atmosphere. There are no tests, grades, or academic requirements – only a desire to learn and a curious nature. We offer in-person courses at three campuses (Central, South, and West) and a host of online learning opportunities.

Where Curiosity Never Retires

Thanks to the generosity of the Bernard Osher Foundation, OLLI at DU joins a network of 125 Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes across the United States that believes that the development and delivery of quality educational programs for 50+ adults is important for sustaining quality of life and healthy minds.
