Shared Interest Groups

Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) are a great way for OLLI-UO members to continue lifelong learning beyond the classroom! These groups provide new opportunities to form friendships with other members around shared interests. They are independent and self-directed, with members deciding where and when to meet and how the group will function.SIGs are open to current OLLI-UO members only, i.e. those who hold a membership for the current year.

Have an idea for a SIG? See examples of past SIGs, review SIG guidelines, and propose a SIG here. Paper SIG forms are available from program manager Heather Inghram or SIG coordinator Judy Hurlburt.

Feel free to contact a facilitator to join in or for more information. Members may obtain the contact information for SIG Coordinator Judy Hurlburt by emailing our front office at or by downloading an OLLI-UO in Central Oregon member directory from your My OLLI-UO portal.
