OLLI is a unique learning community for adults age 50 years old or better. OLLI offers the very best continuing education with no tests and no grades. Distinguished SSU faculty and other Bay Area educators enjoy sharing their expertise with OLLI students, whose life experience and curiosity enrich the exchange of ideas.

OLLI at SSU, now in its 20th year, is one of over 100 Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes nationwide. The program is supported by OLLI student fees, donations, and the earnings on an initial endowment generously provided by the Bernard Osher Foundation. Joining OLLI at SSU means discovering new friends, new knowledge, and new ways to bring meaning and enjoyment to your life. Courses are taught in six week, three week, and single (2  hour) sessions (Fall, Winter, and Spring).  Summer single course offerings are also available.   Areas of study range across many subjects:
