Interested, but not sure if you want to become a member?  Sign-up now and receive more information, our next registration period starts April 12th.


The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Tufts University seeks to engage the minds and foster the well-being of intellectually curious older adults through a wide range of educational and social programs, including lectures, interactive study groups, special-interest clubs, and more, all offered in a welcoming, pressure-free environment. The Institute is self-governing through volunteer-based committees made up of our members.

We're a community of people who love to learn, and who enjoy coming together to discuss our wide-ranging interests and experiences. We offer 150+ "study groups" per year, most of which are led by our own members! Other study group leaders are drawn from the Tufts community, while still others are local experts with special knowledge to share.

At the OLLI, we seek intellectual stimulation in a social atmosphere. No tests, no pressure, no grades - just fun!

If you have a curious mind and an interest in learning, we invite you to consider joining our program.
