Support a lifetime of learning
Continuing Education & Community Engagement

Communities – as well as individuals – are defined by their commitment to learning. We are fortunate to have a rich and vibrant continuing Education program that leverages the vast intellectual talent at the University, bringing learning and educational opportunities to people of all ages, interests, and backgrounds.

Continuing Education at the U of U inspires a love of learning through innovative, educational experiences for all ages and people. We connect the U campus with the local and global community by providing extraordinary personal and professional growth opportunities. We offer classes and programs for ages 5 to 105 with a focus on you and your learning experience.

We invite you to join us in supporting the many programs that Continuing Education has to offer.

Osher visits Vintage Restorations

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

Osher changes lives by offering courses, tours, social events, education fields trips, and lectures to individuals who are close to retirement age, newly retired, or individuals on disability that are over 50 years old. We change lives by offering more than courses; we offer a community of curious adults.

A decision to support Osher allows us to bring the quality programming that makes Osher so special and offer it to as many as possible, regardless of financial ability.
