The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Rhode Island


OLLI instructors are members of the community as well as current and retired University of Rhode Island faculty who are excited about teaching an enthusiastic group of learners in a new way. There are no tests to prepare or papers to grade, just teaching and holding discussions with interested and engaged students.
