Discussion groups are for members who want to ask questions, offer answers, and share their knowledge in the classroom.

Established instructors act as facilitators to create an environment in which participants explore subjects in an atmosphere of intellectual stimulation, creative self-expression, and socializing, without the expectation of tests or grades. Depending on the nature of the course, there could be a modest amount of preparation or readings required, and you may be called upon for your insights–members should be ready to participate.

OLLI membership is required to enroll in discussion groupsBecome a member today.

Remote Courses: At this time, all OLLI courses are being offered remotely using Zoom web-conference software. Courses can be accessed online using your personal computer (or tablet or smart phone) from any location.
