No tests. No grades. Just the joy of learning and sharing.
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Eckerd College offers life-enriching experiences for adult learners. This noncredit education program ranges from one session lectures to intellectually stimulating multi-session courses, from day trips to multi-day international tours.
In January 1997, Senior College at Eckerd College was developed to provide affordable, engaging non-credit courses and travel programs for adults in the Tampa Bay area.
In 2005, the Bernard Osher Foundation recognized Eckerd College’s Senior program as an “exemplary lifelong learning program” and provided a generous grant for support.
The Bernard Osher Foundation currently supports 124 lifelong learning programs at colleges and universities across the U.S. and the National Resource Center, a non-governing center for the Osher network.
