Welcome to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UC Riverside! Director’s Message: UCR is proud to be part of a network of The Bernard Osher Foundation Osher Institutes (OLLIs) across the nation totaling 121. Started in 1977 by Bernard Osher, a respected businessperson and community leader, the Foundation seeks to improve quality of life through support for higher education and the arts. Through his foundation, Bernard Osher provided grants and endowments to create a strong foundation for the Osher Institutes to not only operate and build but also demonstrate through sustained membership and member giving financial viability of the program for future generations. UCR Osher is entering its 16th year operating in Riverside and in the Coachella Valley. Our program offers intellectually stimulating learning experiences that are robust, interactive, balanced, complex, intimate, and healing. Designed for the seekers of knowledge who arrive with high expectations, multiple experiences of their generations and looking to be a part of a vibrant community of like-minded individuals, who join Osher to revisit earlier educational interests or to pursue new educational challenges. Our multi-faceted and qualified team of presenters believe that learning done well is learning that is forever. We look forward to your return each year, to introduce you to those new to our community of learners and to honor members who left us with their legacy for learning.
