“It is our goal to build a thriving program with a permanent location in the heart of Fort Lauderdale,” said Michael Horswell, dean of FAU’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters. “We look forward to offering OLLI members and the community access to hundreds of university-level courses for learners of all backgrounds and interests spanning a broad range of topics.”
OLLI is a nationwide organization that offers lecture series and single lectures for those interested in an enriching educational experience without exams or grades. The curriculum is designed to broaden attendees understanding of cultural, societal, scientific and political issues, and courses are taught by university faculty and distinguished guest lecturers.
The Ft. Lauderdale classes complement FAU’s OLLI programs on the Boca Raton and Jupiter campuses that have been in existence for more than 20 years, forming the largest Osher institute in the country.
