OLLI at UA is a membership program that is member planned and member managed. Member participation and volunteerism are the fuels for the success of OLLI at UA. This new academic cooperative provides mature adults with opportunities for intellectual stimulation, cultural development, and social interaction. OLLI at UA educational programs are centered on courses developed by and often taught by its members, who volunteer their time and talents to share their knowledge and interests with other members.
