About OLLI at SSU:

In 2001, an endowment grant was given to Sonoma State University to become the second site in the country to host an OLLI program. This national network now boasts 119 Institutes, and OLLI staff and volunteers convene each year at a national conference to share ideas and build community.

OLLI serves adults 50 and older, providing dynamic year-round classes with no required reading, no tests and no grades.

Our courses are offered on the main SSU campus, as well as our satellite location in Oakmont.

Thank you for your interest in OLLI at Sonoma State.
