Come for the courses.

Stay for the people.

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 engages 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.

Courses are 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. Course times vary from 90 minutes to two hours taught in three-week sessions and some two-week and one-day courses. Special event times are based on the specific offering so be sure to carefully review the event descriptions for details.
