Welcome to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UNR! Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, OLLI at UNR is a spirited community of seasoned adults who gather to explore new interests, share ideas and make friends. Distinguished professors and knowledgeable instructors volunteer their expertise in programs and activities spanning such diverse topics as art, current events, economics, health, history, literature, music, science, travel, theatre and writing. There are no grades, no tests and no pressure at OLLI. We welcome every adult learner regardless of previous educational experience.
