About Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI)
Members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) are active adults who share a love of learning. Members enjoy innovative and enriching programs in an inclusive environment with others who share their interests. Many members are retired, but it is not a requirement to join, nor do you need to be a graduate or otherwise affiliated with Southern Miss. Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds, vocations, and connections to local community. OLLI is one of 123 such institutes across the country and is the only lifelong learning institute supported by The Bernard Osher Foundation in Mississippi.
Our fall 2019 semester will begin on Monday, September 9 and will run through Friday, November 22, with a weeklong break the week of Monday, October 14. We'll let you know when the fall class schedule guide is available!
