Osher suspends In-person programming indefinitely. Fall 2020 registration will open on August 11.


Educational Travel & Tours

Registration for 2020-21 tours opens on December 12 at 10:00 a.m. 

There is no need to sign up immediately. Everyone who registers will be placed on a separate waitlist for each of the tours. On the confirmation you receive, there will be a link to an online survey. You must fill out this survey by the end of the day on December 19 to receive first consideration for participation in the tour. The survey only needs to be filled out one time.

Based on the responses received, a determination will be made as to who will participate in the tour. The primary considerations in this decision will be if:

  • You are an active member of Osher
  • You are physically capable of participating in the tour
  • You have either a roommate or a travel companion.  (Those attending the December 11 meeting will have the opportunity to meet other possible roommates or companions).

There will also be an important information meeting for all five tours on Wednesday, December 11 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the UWM School of Continuing Education. RSVP to Kim Beck at kcb@uwm.edu if you plan on attending.

Those obtaining a place on 2020-21 tours will be notified by January 3, 2020.
