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 covering changing topics in the arts, literature, ethics, science, politics, religion and history. The Osher Talks feature speakers on a wide range of fascinating topics. 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.

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