This summer, in light of the COVID-19 crisis, Osher has decided to lower its tuition. We believe that this decision will continue to make learning and conversation accessible to our members and the community. We have also decided that we will not accept gift certificates during the Summer 2020 session. Our systems were not designed to process gift certificates with remote workers. For the health of our staff and our members, we ask that you save your gift certificate for our Fall 2020 session..
The Institute is managed by a small staff supported by numerous member volunteers. Our instructors are distinguished emeritus faculty, scholars, and experts from the community who share a passion for teaching and appreciation for all that mature students bring to the classroom. Find out more about our history and the faces behind our program.
With the generous support of The Bernard Osher Foundation – as well as individual donors, sponsors, and partners – we are able to bring together a community of adult learners who share a passion for intellectual, social, and civic engagement. Find out how you can help »
Dean is well prepared, offered a strong overview of the public land issues and provided qualified quest speakers. As a result the class participation was high and we were actively engaged. On top of that, he's a witty guy. — Joel M., Spring 2017
