Our Mission

OLLI at Penn State’s mission is to provide educational, social, travel, and volunteer experiences for mature adults to enhance and enrich their lives.

With no homework, grades, or tests, OLLI offers a robust schedule of noncredit programming throughout the year. OLLI is supported by the Osher Foundation, Penn State Outreach, membership dues, program fees, and the time and talents of our dedicated volunteers.

OLLI’s vision is to create a community that promotes lifelong learning while embracing our values of education, integrity, quality, and diversity.
