OLLI is a part of the College of Education and Human Sciences and provides non-credit courses, events and travel opportunities, as well as social opportunities for people 50 years old and older. Courses are offered in-person, online and on demand. There are no tests, no grades and no homework. OLLI courses and events are focused on the joy of learning.
Registration, available online or by calling 402-472-6265, is required by Aug. 5.
Attendees will hear about the benefits of joining a program which offers opportunities to engage the mind and meet others with similar interests. From non-credit courses on the arts, science, literature, contemporary issues and more, to physical activity such as pickleball and kayaking, plus a variety of interest groups, OLLI strives to provide diverse programming to adult learners.
“OLLI is affordable, high quality educational and social experiences for older adults. People simply need to show up and engage in the love of learning,” said Bob Michl, OLLI director. “OLLI offers a wide variety of classes with volunteer instructors who are inspiring in their knowledge of their subject. OLLI is a great way to connect to the world and find connections with other people.”
