A Message from
Our Board President
Autumn is my favorite season: falling leaves, cooler temps, hot chocolate, and a new crop of OLLI classes designed just for YOU! I am so happy to welcome you to this new term and all its possibilities for life-long learning, discussion, exploring something new and renewing friendships with OLLI members and friends. Try something outside your comfort zone or something you’ve thought you should know about but haven’t tried yet, or take something you know you’ll love.
Whether you are in Morgantown or in Charleston, there will be opportunities to learn and interact with instructors who do this because they all love to share their knowledge and a love of learning. If you feel this is an activity worthy of support, then I urge you to take classes, support OLLI financially, by working on a committee, or dragging a few friends to classes to get them hooked! You won’t be sorry, I promise you.
Jim Held, President
OLLI at WVU Board of Directors
Welcome to OLLI at WVU!
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, known as OLLI at WVU, is a membership organization, housed within the School of Public Health at West Virginia University, that recognizes the unique experiences, capabilities and wisdom of mature members of the community. OLLI at WVU emphasizes the sharing of ideas through peer learning, member participation and collaborative leadership. We are accepting proposals for courses to be offered in both Morgantown and Charleston, WV at this time.
Course Proposals for the Winter 2016 Term (starts January 25, 2016) are due no later than November 2, 2015 to be considered for our Winter term. Please consider teaching a course for OLLI at WVU as we strengthen and celebrate lifelong learning in both the Charleston and Morgantown areas. More information for prospective instructors can be found attached and/or on our website. Please complete a Class Proposal Form if you are interested.
If you are interested in distance learning or offering an online class that may be archived, we have the ability to use SOLE and Collaborate through the Health Science Center and can set up accounts for the members to access your class.
If you are interested in becoming a member, the Fall Term has just begun and forms and the course catalogs are available online at www.olliatwvu.org. Please call our office to be added to our electronic mailing or postal lists.
Thank you for sharing your passion, skills and knowledge with OLLI at West Virginia University.
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.
