Osher Lifelong Learning Institute


The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Temple University is a lifelong learning academy where retired persons attend classes and pursue the joy of learning without the traditional academic requirements of tests and grades. More about OLLI.


NOTE: For the first time in OLLI history, we are going to cap our membership at 1,250 for the current 2014-2015 membership year. We expect to reach this enrollment limit by the third week of February 2015.


Thank you to the Bernard Osher Foundation

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Temple University's Center City Campus, is pleased to announce its recent gift of $1million from the Bernard Osher Foundation. This is the second such gift that OLLI at Temple has received from the Osher Foundation in four years. We are so delighted and grateful to the Osher Foundation for their ongoing support and encouragement. They have been extraordinarily generous and helpful to our program and we will be forever appreciative of Bernard and Barbro Osher and the wonderful staff of the foundation, in particular, Senior Program Officer David Blazevich and the President, Mary Bitterman.
