THE OSHER LIFELONG LEARNING INSTITUTE— WHERE CURIOSITY NEVER RETIRES
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at California State University San Marcos was launched in 2004 with the mission of bringing quality programs and courses to retirement age learners in our community. A member of the Bernard Osher Foundation, OLLI at CSUSM is part of a national network of life-long learning institutes designed to engage, captivate, and
expand the minds of seasoned learners, allowing them to experience the pure joy of learning. OLLI programs and courses are designed to enhance quality of life, keep the
mind alert and help the memory stay sharp. Our non-credit courses are taught by University faculty and field experts in a wide variety of subjects. Each semester OLLI strives to bring in new, exciting curriculum to engage and inspire students. What sets OLLI at CSUSM apart from other programs is our satellite classrooms,
bringing University caliber instruction to a neighborhood near you! In addition to offering courses on our San Marcos and Temecula campuses, Osher courses are available in 9 other locations throughout the community. If you are looking for intelligent fun - are interested in connecting with a group
of your peers who share common goals, want to learn new things, explore new ideas and share your own personal experiences - then OLLI is for you!
