Lifelong Learning Society Receives $4 Million Grant

This week, FAU’s Lifelong Learning Society received a $4 million endowment grant from the Bernard Osher Foundation. The program will be named the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Florida Atlantic University in his honor.

OLLI at FAU has more than 14,000 members, the largest in the country, and is dedicated to offering intellectually enriching educational experiences to older adults with non-credit courses in a welcoming atmosphere and state-of-the-art facilities. The lifelong learning program was established in 1980 at the Boca Raton campus and at the Jupiter campus in 1997.

This generous gift from the Osher Foundation will support and stimulate the strategic development of Lifelong Learning programming at both the University’s Boca Raton and Jupiter campuses.

This gift represents the Osher Foundation’s strong desire to invest in FAU and shows just how confident they are in what our lifelong learning institute offers to our communities. It also ensures that the lifelong learning program will be here forever, and I couldn’t be more thankful and proud.
