Who are We?

 

OLLI at UConn is a member-driven program offering non-credit learning experiences (courses, lectures, and special events) to all adults who are 50 or older and want to engage socially and intellectually with their peers as teachers and learners. Situated on an intimate, state-of-the-art university campus with traditional-age students and research faculty, OLLI also provides fertile ground for the exchange of ideas and diverse opportunities for partnership with other cultural, educational, and arts organizations.

We believe in creating a welcoming and supportive environment for everyone. OLLI inspires countless discussions about the nature of family, the universe, history, language, culture, and religion. We create art, write stories, and enhance physical and emotional well-being. OLLI members break aging-stereotypes every day, especially through our intergenerational learning with UConn students. By participating in OLLI’s activities, our members contribute to the health and success of the entire community.
