Welcome to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of South Florida! We are here for adults age 50+ who are curious, enjoy learning with others, and who want to stay relevant in our rapidly changing environment.
OLLI-USF offers about 300 courses annually in a variety of topics. Brush up on or
learn new skills in one of our Technology classes; explore the Humanities and Arts
with a class in painting or beginning Italian; or gain a better understanding of current
issues with a Political Science offering. Other available topics include Literature,
History, Science and Nature, and a variety of Lifestyle courses ranging from Wine
Etiquette to managing your finances. There are no tests or grades in OLLI courses,
and most have no prerequisites.
Most OLLI courses are taught by our members. If you can bring a skill or knowledge area to the classroom, submit a course proposal form and share your expertise with your fellow members. Click here to go to our online course proposal form.
OLLI-USF also offers a number of special programs and events -- many open to the public. Our Friday Lecture Series meets most Fridays and offers a wide variety of speakers on current events. Our members-only Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) bring members together in an informal environment that allows discussion and exploration of similar interests.
