OLLI at UCI members are intellectually curious, interested in discovering new facts, sharing ideas, and building a social connection with other like-minded individuals of their community.
Mission of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is to enhance the quality of life for mature adults by promoting intellectual growth in a center for senior learning. In collaboration with the University of California, Irvine, we provide unique educational experiences in an environment of social interaction.
Each year, OLLI at UCI provides two-semesters of exceptional learning—a fall term (September-January) and a spring term (February-June).
Classes are taught by UC Irvine faculty, instructors from other local universities and colleges, emeriti, outside professionals and qualified OLLI peers. Classes meet near the UC Irvine campus. Most classes involve three to five two-hour meetings.
OLLI at UCI curriculum includes the riches of science, arts, humanities and social sciences. Topics are carefully balanced, offering literature, performing and visual arts, history, memoir writing, current events, Shakespeare, film analysis, environmental affairs, levels of the Internet, domestic and foreign relations, and world cultures.
For several years OLLI at UC Irvine has offered a summer program with a casual variety of socially oriented classes and how-to events. You do not need to be an OLLI member to attend Summer Lite classes. Small fees are assessed to help pay the summer costs of maintaining our OLLI home. Check the Summer Lite Schedule and join us to lighten up your summer. Click here for the complete Summer Lite Schedule and Enrollment Form. Sorry, no refunds. Questions? Call 949-824-5414.
