The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Pitt is seeking course proposals for its Fall 2018 Term. OLLI courses are typically 1x a week for 5 weeks. Each term offers 2 sessions of courses. We seek course proposals in a variety of areas including: literature, history, political science and government, the arts, sciences, languages and more. Most OLLI designed courses are similar to actual college courses (but no tests or grades, abbreviated content, and shortened to run for 5 weeks).

OLLI Instructors are often university professors and instructors, visiting lecturers, Postdoctoral fellows, and others with content and teaching expertise. Instructors in the program are paid. Course proposals for Fall term are due by April 27.
