Lifelong learning programs at Bradley began in 1994 with the Institute for Learning in Retirement (ILR).
In 2008, The Bernard Osher Foundation awarded Bradley a grant that established the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute - OLLI at Bradley University.
Through two separate $1 million gifts from the Foundation, OLLI at Bradley is recognized as an Osher program of distinction.
