Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Tufts University

As a member of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Tufts University, you have the opportunity to explore new realms of your education, pursue your passions and connect with a community of members and friends.

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Tufts University seeks to engage the minds and foster the well being of intellectually curious adult learners, over 50 years of age, through a wide variety of membership engagement opportunities.  

We're a community of people who love to learn, and who enjoy coming together to discuss our wide-ranging interests and experiences. We're a membership-based organization that serves lifelong learners by offering non-credit bearing courses, lectures, interest groups and special events in virtual and in-person modalities. Our courses are taught by OLLI members, Tufts graduate students, faculty and staff, and outside experts. At Tufts OLLI, we seek intellectual stimulation in a social atmosphere. No tests, no pressure, no grades - just fun!

Hear What Our Members Have to Say

In June 2006 I walked out of a 36-year teaching career and walked into life as a student again. I've taken fun and stimulating Osher classes, met wonderful, engaged people and enjoyed cultural and social experiences ever since. Tufts Osher Institute has enriched me beyond my wildest expectations. Thanks to all.

All my Zoom classes have worked very well. Particularly with the smaller classes, I think you actually get better participation in class discussion using zoom than you do with in person classes.

There are both advantages and disadvantages to the model. Miss the ease of personal communication but can participate from many locations. And no traffic hassles!
