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.

Our spring semester runs from January 24 through April 29. During that time, we will host 66 courses/events covering a wide array of topics, including 30 brand new courses! Courses will be offered in various formats, including in-person, hybrid and online. 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. Most courses will last 90 minutes each, taught in three-week sessions, however some courses are a one-time only offering so please look at the descriptions for details.  Access our catalog here (PDF).

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