The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at NC State (OLLI) provides non-credit courses, lectures, study trips, and special events for adults aged 50+. We are part of a nationwide network of over 100 lifelong learning institutes that have received support from The Bernard Osher Foundation.
Membership is at the core of our program, and we rely on members taking an active role, whether in the classroom or behind the scenes helping us design the program. PaArt of what makes our learning community special is the exchange of ideas in the classroom from those with diverse backgrounds. Our instructors volunteer in order to keep fees low, and they find it rewarding because of this rich learning atmosphere.
Since our classes are non-credit, the only prerequisite is a desire to learn. There are no tests or grades, and homework is optional! Members also have the change to participate in extracurricular special interest groups, which are completely member-organized. Most classes are held at NC State’s McKimmon Center for Extension and Continuing Education, which is easily accessible and has ample free parking. We hope you will join our community of learners!
