OLLI set to expand to Miami Shores

The University of Miami’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) is expanding to Miami Shores. The Miami Shores program will begin on Monday.

OLLI was started at UM in 1984 and offers a relaxed learning environment for individuals that have been away from an academic setting for an extended time period. No homework or tests are given.

The Miami Shores programs feature three six-week classes. These classes include “Leonard Bernstein: America’s 20th Century Music Giant,” taught by Morton Slakoff and a Ruth Morris creative writing course. The third class is “Islam 101,” taught by Mitra Raheb.

Membership to OLLI is $25 and includes access to the Otto G. Richter Library and museum excursions.
