The mission of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UM, affectionately known as MOLLI, is to offer programs that promote the lifelong learning and personal growth of +50 individuals through a diverse collection of non-credit, short courses offered in the fall, winter and spring. We are looking for individuals +50 who are curious and love to learn. Our goal is to create an accessible and innovative learning environment so that individuals from all backgrounds and levels of education may pursue learning. This is truly learning for learning’s sake – no exams, no grades, just fun!
MOLLI courses expose learners to Montana's best teachers, including emeritus and current faculty, as well as professionals from the community. Program offerings include lectures, ongoing discussions, short courses, and interest groups covering topics from the humanities, sciences and the arts, as well as community and regional issues. Courses often take place in the School of Extended & Lifelong Learning - Todd Building on The University of Montana campus, but the more hands-on courses may also take place in the community, such as out in the field, in a lab, or in an art studio.
Take a second to explore our upcoming courses on our Course Information page, or to look at past offerings, please view our Brochures page. Go ahead - let your curiosity run away with you!
