Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI)

Our Learning Community’s Values

OLLI at UNF’s goal is to create environments that maximize the learning experience for all members. Many of our programs offer a forum for the lively and even passionate exchange of views. To that end, our learning community follows principles of courtesy and mutual respect that promote reasoned discourse and intellectual honesty. Opposing viewpoints are honored and appreciated to preserve the dignity of others.


Transgressions may include denigrating other’s views or opinions, threatening behaviors, offensive or abusive language, disruptive classroom conduct, sexual harassment or discrimination and monopolizing discussions. Personal attacks are especially unwarranted.


OLLI members, instructors, facilitators or coordinators who do not or cannot adhere to the principles of courtesy and mutual respect may be removed from class or denied the privilege of future participation.
