OLLI at U-M responds in traditional and innovative ways to address the interests and needs of its members. Its programming will foster social engagement and ensure quality learning opportunities that enhance the lives of senior learners.
OLLI envisions a thriving local community that welcomes older adults of diverse backgrounds, interests, and subject matter expertise engaging in learning experiences and social opportunities that foster shared understanding, learning, and global change.
OLLI values our community assets: children, residents, those over fifty years old and lifelong learners. Within our membership we value the rich sharing of diverse ideas, experiences, identities, and backgrounds. We see OLLI's lifelong learners exploring, adding to, modeling, and challenging a more inclusive community.
