A Message from Our Director
Welcome to Spring Term and the opportunities and potential of the season.
This is an exciting time for OLLI at WVU. Our technology changes and upgrades implemented for the last term were successful; new staff positions have been approved to provide additional administrative support for our program; and we are branching out to Charleston - find out more information about the kick-off on page 46. As interest in OLLI at WVU grows, we continue to seek out opportunities to collaborate with other universities, with other lifelong learning programs, and with organizations in our community and state who value the joy of learning. These collaborations help us to increase our resources, broaden our perspectives and course offerings, and reach our membership goals. If you belong to a group or organization that could benefit from learning more about OLLI at WVU, please let me know.
Our Board of Directors is listed on page 8 and the Committee Chairs and descriptions are on page 9. Please consider volunteering! We currently need an Office Assistants Committee Chairperson, and members for our PR and Membership Committee. Please contact our Nomination Committee if you would like to be considered to be put on the ballot for our elections held at our Annual Meeting on June 10th.
Do you have friends who ask a lot of questions, are curious, or love learning? Please invite them to our Preterm Showcase on April 1st or to join you for a class (please get a voucher from the office).
I look forward to seeing everyone this Spring Term. There are 56 courses to choose from, with many new instructors and topics, such as zip lining and scuba diving, as well as some classes from our Winter Term repeated by request. Together this will be a great season of learning!
Angela Faulkner-Van Deysen, Executive Director

When Monongalia County Schools are closed for inclement weather, there will be no OLLI classes. Two hour delays will not affect OLLI classes. We observe WVU holidays.
