Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

Since 2001, California State University, East Bay’s Concord Campus has been the home of the SCHOLAR program, which became SCHOLAR-OLLI in January 2003 and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at California State University, East Bay in January 2005.  At present, the program offers approximately 100 courses and lectures per year in subjects that range from the liberal arts to the natural sciences.

The program is funded by a grant from the Bernard Osher Foundation, membership dues and program fees.  Significant support also is provided by the Cal State East Bay Concord Campus, which contributes outreach services and space for lectures, courses and Advisory Board meetings, as well as by the Cal State East Bay Division of Continuing and International Education, which provides administrative and marketing support.
