Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UK offers educational and enrichment courses, programs and events created for dynamic lifelong learners aged 50+ who are continually searching for exciting topics and exploring new opportunities in learning! Courses are offered in a wide variety of topic areas including History, Visual & Performing Arts, Culture, Computers and Technology, Health, Literature, Languages and Science & Environment. The Donovan Forum Presentation series is offered weekly throughout the Fall and Spring and is open to the public.

 

For over 50 years, the University of Kentucky has been offering lifelong learning programs for older adults. Today, almost 1,300 OLLI Scholars enroll annually in educational and enrichment courses at our sites in Lexington and Morehead. Through the generous support of The Bernard Osher Foundation and our members, the OLLI at UK continues to grow in number and in offerings.

 

Please join us in supporting the Fund for Lifelong Learning at UK. Your donation goes exclusively toward OLLI at UK’s programs and operations. Your gifts will help us achieve our goal of providing enhanced classroom spaces, support daily operational expenses and help keep OLLI membership and course fees affordable.
