Service to Community - Making Connections through OLLI at HSU in 2019

OLLI at HSU is collecting course proposals for Summer 2019 now through April 5th. Teaching for OLLI offers the opportunity to share your expertise and make direct connections with learners beyond the HSU campus. OLLI at HSU is a vibrant lifelong learning community with over 1300 members in our region.  

OLLI  members are aged 50 and better and bring a wide variety of experience and interest to every class. HSU faculty who have taught an OLLI class tend to return to teach for OLLI again. It is fun to have eager learners to recharge your favorite lessons.
