OLLI - Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, or OLLI, at the University of North Dakota is supported by The Bernard Osher Foundation. OLLI@UND is a non-profit, membership organization with a simple philosophy: An active mind creates a sense of mental, physical and social well-being.   It's a vibrant learning community of adults 50 years and better who want to continue their lifetime of learning with programs rich in content, shared interests, and life experience.

OLLI@UND started in North Dakota on the UND campus in Grand Forks and also has an active location on the campus of Bismarck State College.

These programs are purely for enjoyment - no tests, grades, or need for prior college experience - just the chance to join your peers in the joy of learning and the many benefits it brings.
