Can I volunteer?
Of course! We welcome participation by all members. We believe the more people are involved in shaping OLLI at LSU, the better quality our programming and services will be.

Who are the instructors?
Instructors are LSU professors (many retired) and/or local experts in their respective fields from throughout the southern Louisiana area. Many of our members serve as instructors and course coordinators.
How do I sign up to be a Course Coordinator?
You can call the OLLI at LSU office (225-578-6763), or talk to a member of a chapter Curriculum Committee, your instructor, or a course coordinator and offer to become a course coordinator assistant. This is a great way to become involved.
How can I make suggestions to improve the program?
OLLI at LSU courses and events are member-advised. This means the activities, courses and procedures are primarily directed by the members.
