A Message from Our Director

Angela Faulkner-Van Deysen

This summer we are pleased to offer a variety of courses ranging in topic and duration to better fit in your summer schedule. The Curriculum Committee has selected courses that meet one, two, three, four, five and/or six times and include new and known instructors and subject areas.  By member request, our 43 courses (OLLI at WVU, Charleston has 7 courses with 12 sessions scheduled - page 14.)  are categorized by topic area (page 10) as well as listed by date in the Schedule at a Glance (page 12, page 14).

Because OLLI at WVU is member-centered, we rely on you to let us know of subjects that fascinate you and we gather much of this information from our Feedback Forms. Moving forward we will be asking for some additional information from our members so that we can better understand the interests, talents, and expertise of our membership as we update our committee structures, responsibilities and volunteer opportunities and try to better match course topics and instructors.

Over the last term, many members have provided feedback and generously gave of their time to help revisit our OLLI at WVU mission, vision and strategic plan and help review our policies and procedures. We are close to completion and have much of the information available on our www.olli@wvu.org site, located with our Board minutes. These tools are vital to the growth and sustainability of the organization and will also let you know when we are open. We have also planned two opportunities for you to learn more about what is happening and for you to tell me MORE (page 11).

I look forward to hearing from you and enjoying the sunshine! Welcome to summer at OLLI at WVU!

Angela Faulkner-Van Deysen, Executive Director
