About the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI)

Nurturing New Ideas and Experiences

OLLI Introduction Video

The mission of Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Texas Tech University is to provide enjoyable and stimulating non-credit learning and cultural opportunities for its members.

We are proud and happy to announce that we have expanded our program into the TTU Hill Country locations of Fredericksburg, Junction, and Marble Falls, Texas.

We are self-sustaining, supported through membership dues, class fees, an endowment from the Bernard Osher Foundation, donations and in-kind support from the Texas Tech Alumni Association and Texas Tech University.

The Bernard Osher Foundation is committed to the goal of establishing a national network of lifelong learning institutes at universities across the country, and Texas Tech was among the first 70 institutions to receive funding for its program. The Osher network now consists of 119 member institutions with at least one institute in every state, four in Texas, and several at Big 12 schools.
