Shared Interest Groups (SIGs)   NEW!

OLLI AT UVA IS INTRODUCING SHARED INTEREST GROUPS (SIGs) An OLLI Shared Interest Group is formed by a nucleus of OLLI members with a shared interest in the same subject, and who are willing to participate as active, rather than as passive, learners. SIGs provide ongoing learning, friendship and support around the shared interest. Each group is different depending on its focus, and all provide interesting lifelong learning opportunities as well as a fun social experience that is ongoing through semesters and class cycles.

 

 

 

Shared Interest Groups (SIGs)  NEW!

 Show Description

If you would like to start a SIG, contact Volunteer Coordinator Liz Courain at ec9w@virginia.edu or 434-923-3600.

Proposals for SIGs are taken at any time.

As SIGs are created, OLLI members will be notified through the weekly Eblast and invited to join. When at least six

members have expressed interest, the first meeting can be scheduled.

To join an established SIG, members ask to have their names placed on the email distribution list for the SIG, and

start participating. It’s that simple.
