Celebrating 10 Years - Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI)

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI)

Spring into action! Start planning your OLLI at UNF Spring/Summer term. 


"Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel." Socrates   

Discover 60 new programs and more than 40 others that will be new to you! Thanks to your generous OLLI at UNF program volunteers you will be spoiled for choice with a diverse schedule of classes and ED-ventures. Start planning your schedule today.  


  • ED-ventures take you behind the scenes local industry and to places filled with history and natural beauty for you to explore.
  • We're pleased to offer a new learning immersion experience. "Chowtown: Jacksonville's Farm to Table Movement" introduces you to the folks that grow and harvest local foodstuffs. You'll explore the history, trends and future of local farms, and visit local venues.   
  • We continue our partnership with UNF's Thomas G. Carpenter Library with an "Art Tour of the Library." We'll reprise "Inside OLLI," a free class that takes you behind the scenes at your OLLI and its national network. 

Preview the term by clicking on "Enroll" on the left then "View Upcoming Courses." Enrollment opens March 16 at 8 a.m.!  Paper copies are available for review in the office during business hours. Click here to read our cancellation policy
