About Osher

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UWM’s School of Continuing Education is designed for older adults who share a love of learning throughout their lifetimes.

Members enjoy innovative and enriching programs in a congenial setting with others who share their interests. Although most members are retired, you do not have to be a retiree to join. Nor do you need to be a UWM graduate or otherwise associated with the University. People of all educational backgrounds are welcome to join!

Members receive the bimonthly newsletter, which lists courses and programs and keeps you up-to-date on timely information about the organization and its members.

With the support of The Bernard Osher Foundation, Osher thrives as an institution dedicated to serving older adults in the pursuit of lifelong learning. Osher institutes are found on the campuses of more than 100 colleges and universities throughout the U.S.

Osher is a leader among the 200 organizations affiliated with the Elderhostel Institute Network, which promotes a vast array of learning programs for older adults.

Osher operates under the direction of its own board of directors with staff assistance from the UWM School of Continuing Education.
