Help Support Osher
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

Osher logoWith 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.

The Bernard Osher Foundation

The Bernard Osher Foundation was founded in 1977 by Bernard Osher, a respected businessman and community leader. The Foundation's priorities include programs addressing the educational needs of adults aged 50 and over at institutions of higher education (Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes), as well as other higher education and regional arts and cultural programs. The Foundation currently funds over 100 Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes across the country for learning in retirement.

Individual Donors

Individual donors are making a difference in our community. Gracious friends and supporters like you and others allow us to bring the quality programming that makes Osher so special and the benefits of lifelong learning to more of Utah's 50 and over population. There are many ways you can support the Osher Institute. Make an annual tax-deductible gift to the Institute, add Osher to your estate plan, become a member, or give the gift of lifelong learning to someone.

Volunteer for Osher

  • Curriculum Committee

    The primary function of the Curriculum Committee is to secure a well-balanced selection of courses each term that have academic merit and that appeal to the interests of Osher members. Committee members accomplish this by identifying and soliciting qualified instructors; guiding and facilitating the submission of course proposals; ensuring complete proposals; and reviewing the success of courses.

    If you have questions or require more information about the Curriculum Committee, please contact the Osher office at 801-585-5442 or osher@utah.edu with "About My Curriculum Committee Application" in the subject line.

    Your query will be directed to either the Osher Director or the Chair of the Curriculum Committee. They will get back to you as soon as they can. Thank you!
