Adult Programs: What is OLLI?
The Osher Lifetime Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Alabama is a membership program that is member planned and managed, and the Vestavia Hills Chapter serves the Greater Birmingham Area. It is open to mature individuals who have an interest in continuing to learn. Members pay small annual membership dues to participate in the Bonus programs, field trips, and social activities; and term dues if attending courses during that term (and grants are available to help pay the fees if needed). Part of the OLLI approach is that speakers are volunteers, encouraging its own members to teach.
