Programs and Activities

Participating in Institute programs and activities is an excellent way to get involved and make new friends. Members can choose from a variety of offerings.

Short Courses are two- to five-week sessions and Osher Talks are one-time offerings: both focus on various topics such as the arts, literature, ethics, law, politics, religion, history and health care. Programs are taught by UWM faculty, Osher members and other noted experts and professionals in the community.

The Go Explore excursions are one-day outings to places of interest in the Milwaukee area such as museums, theaters and planetariums.

Special Interest Groups meet regularly for study and discussion. They are offered in such fields as languages (French, German, Italian, and Spanish), history, ecology and reading.

Educational Travel & Tours provide experiences of a lifetime. Travel to remarkable locations around the world on tours led by noted UWM faculty and staff, and take full advantage of the discount available to Institute members.

Osher Distinguished Speaker Series are lively, informative lectures which provide you with insights needed to make sense of what is happening in the world around you.

Several Special Events connect you with other members, including the spring luncheon and December holiday party.
