Live Inspired

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI)

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Fresno State offers learning opportunities to those age 50 and better. No entrance requirements, tests, grades, or papers – just learning for enjoyment, personal growth, and intellectual stimulation with like-minded people. Come learn for the love of learning!

Supported by the Bernard Osher Foundation, our OLLI is a vibrant learning community offering a rich array of lectures, short courses, and adventures of particular interest to retired or semi-retired adults. Lifelong learning enriches your mind and will nourish your curious spirit as you embark on discovery of topics you’ve always wanted to learn about.

We are currently working off campus and all of our offerings are online via the Zoom platform, which is free to download. Our office hours are Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

You have a learning home at the Fresno State OLLI and we hope you join us!
