OLLI-UO suspended due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic

The OLLI-UO program, in both Central Oregon and Eugene/Springfield, is currently on hiatus from its regular in-person programming, including lectures, courses, study and discussion groups, Shared Interest Groups (SIGs), field trips, special events, and meetings. Email osher@uoregon.edu for more information about online learning opportunities offered by OLLI-UO during the program hiatus.

An exact target date for resuming in-person programming is undetermined at this time. That said, Governing Council members from Central Oregon and Eugene/Springfield, along with OLLI-UO program staff, are working together to explore what programming might look like in autumn. Though no final decisions have been made, it is likely that a form of "blended" delivery will be necessary, utilizing a combination of in-person (limited, social-distanced) and remote participation.

This situation is fluid and will be monitored by OLLI-UO program staff and Continuing and Professional Education leadership, in alignment with UO decisions and protocols and guidance from Governor Kate Brown. Updates for OLLI-UO will be communicated through email and the osher.uoregon.edu website.

Per social distancing protocols, all Continuing and Professional Education (including OLLI-UO) staff are now working remotely. As such, the Continuing and Professional Education office is no longer holding public hours. All phone lines will be managed by remote staff. Staff are also monitoring the osher@uoregon.edu email inbox, and that is the preferred method of communication. Please note that there may be a delay in response times to phone calls and email, from a few minutes to up to one full business day.

We appreciate your understanding during this time. Be safe and stay healthy! We can't wait to see you again—in person!
