Celebrating 20 Years of OLLI!

The SVSU Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is a member-based educational and social organization that offers non-credit educational programs & travel opportunities for the over-50 population in the surrounding Great Lakes Bay Region.  It is currently in its 20th year of operation and has more than 2,000 members.

Letter from the Director:

As we enter our 20th year of service to the Great Lakes Bay Region, I wanted to thank all of our members for supporting this educational and social organization over the last two decades. OLLI owes its success to you, the participant. With the fall semester beginning on September 1, we look forward to an ambitious calendar, though it will look a little different than members are used to. This fall the objective is to be flexible. As a result, we are offering programming one month at a time. Class offerings include a variety of face to face and virtual options, and there is an impressive selection of local adventures in place of our day trip calendar. Foremost, we have our members in mind this fall as we plan with your health and well-being in mind. We want you to have options and choose what works for you. We look forward to continuing to learn and celebrate with you this year, no matter what it looks like.
