Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at LSU

Welcome to OLLI at LSU!  The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Louisiana State University (OLLI at LSU) is one of a network of 119 university-affiliated lifelong learning programs supported by The Bernard Osher Foundation. We offer non-credit educational programs specifically developed for adults ages 50 and older; university connection and university support; robust volunteer leadership and sound organizational structure; and a diverse repertoire of intellectually stimulating courses and opportunities.

As a vibrant, member-advised community of lifelong learners, our mission is to foster lifelong learning and individual growth for learners ages 50 and over by creating intellectually stimulating learning opportunities that enrich lives.


We invite you to be part of the OLLI at LSU community. Enrich your life, make new friends, or try something new.

Summer courses are over, but fall is coming soon!

Membership Fee Update

Beginning with the 2016-2017 membership year, the OLLI at LSU membership fee will increase from $40 to $50 to keep pace with rising costs. Continuing Education and OLLI leadership decided that increasing the annual membership was preferable to increasing course fees. As of June 1, 2016, the membership fee is $50. The 2016 – 2017 membership year begins July 1, 2016.
