Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Southern Oregon University (OLLI at SOU) is the Rogue Valley’s premier choice for staying intellectually stimulated and socially connected. This 2000-member organization offers non-credit classes in two locations – Ashland and Medford—as well as online.

The program is geared towards those aged 50+, but any age adult is welcome. A $150 annual fee entitles members to enroll in an unlimited number of classes (space permitting) from over 100 courses offered in each of three terms, from September to June. There is no per-course tuition or cost for events and activities. Scholarships are available.

The astonishing range of course topics include art, film, history, literature, music, movement, nature, personal development, social sciences, STEM and writing. Learning is a pleasure for members and instructors alike, because there are no tests or grades. There are no academic prerequisites. Members can establish connections with other curious minds through lively class discussions, social activities, and shared interest and discussion groups, and well as by volunteering on committees or in governance. 

It is not necessary to be a member to become a volunteer OLLI instructor. A course includes from 2 to 10 weekly sessions of from 60 to 120 minutes in length and can start and stop anytime during the term. Course proposals for fall, winter and spring terms will be accepted during May, August and December, respectively.

OLLI membership fees are kept low through member donations and the generosity of the Bernard Osher Foundation. Support of lifelong learning for older adults is a key area of focus for the Osher Foundation.

For more information about OLLI, including a course catalog and a listing of free public lectures and events, visit inside.sou.edu/olli or call 541-552-6048.
