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

Have you ever considered offering a class for the community through OLLI? 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 classes vary in length and presentation but usually consist of 4 to 12 hours of instruction without assessment or homework. Through the years I've found most faculty have a "favorite six hours" block of instruction. Those pockets of inspiration and passion make a perfect OLLI class!
