KU’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute offers noncredit enrichment courses and events in accessible and innovative learning environments throughout northeastern Kansas and Greater Kansas City, and engage virtually with individuals from across the nation. Although our program focuses on individuals 50 and "better", learners of all ages and backgrounds are welcome. No homework. No tests. No pressure. It’s learning just for the joy of it.

Beginning this fall, we will host courses/events in various formats, including in-person, hybrid and online via zoom. Hybrid courses are a new feature for us, and we appreciate your support as we continue to strive to make our offerings available to all seniors regardless of their ability to attend in person. If you sign up for a hybrid course, you can either attend in person or join us online. You will just need to specify your choice upon registration.

Our fall semester runs from September 13 through December 3. During that time, we will host 80 courses/events covering a wide array of topics, including 37 brand new courses! Access our catalog here (PDF). Register for courses and events here.

Due to growing concerns regarding the COVID-19 Delta variant, KU has mandated all individuals regardless of vaccination status wear masks in indoor spaces on our campus where more than one person is gathering, effective August 9. This is an evolving situation, and as we have done in the past, we will continue to update you of changes. You can also view the full text of the mask policy for additional detail.
