OLLI in Central Oregon is a cooperative learning community that depends on the active participation of its members. A Council, elected by the membership, acts as the main leadership body while additional volunteer committees help develop program policies, curriculum activities, and special events. Membership is open to all who have an interest in the lifelong pursuit of knowledge; there are no requirements that involve prior college experience or UO affiliation.
Classes and events are held in Bend.
Published monthly, the newsletter contains in-depth descriptions of coming events for all OLLI-UO sites.
Programming includes lectures, short courses, study groups, discussion groups, tours and field trips, and special events.
