THE DOMINICAN UNIVERSITY ART MUSEUM HISTORY CLASS FOR SENIORS IN THE DANCE PALACE CHURCH SPACE
In 2002, the Bernard Osher Foundation began to consider higher education programs targeted toward mature students, including seniors over 50 who no longer needed degrees, but sought learning for the joy of learning – without examinations or grades. The foundation created The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, not only at Dominican University but at 116 other universities and colleges around the country, including at eight U.C. campuses. The OLLI program at Dominican University, founded in 2004, shares some faculty with the Berkeley OLLI and now has over 1,000 students.
