Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) courses are taught by an outstanding array of instructors who are current and retired faculty from the University of Pittsburgh and surrounding colleges, as well as experts from the local community.  Our instructors are teaching dozens of courses of high interest, relevant, and timely topics to our experienced and insightful OLLI members. Instructors and members, alike, enjoy the experience of teaching/learning not for grades or degrees but for the love of it.

Courses typically meet weekly for five weeks, with two five-week sessions scheduled each academic term (fall, spring, and summer).
