The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is hosted by Bradley University, which recognizes OLLI as a standard for excellence in lifelong learning. Bradley supports OLLI through the Division of Continuing Education and Professional Development, which assists OLLI with leadership, staff, meeting space, and oversight. OLLI at Bradley University is an endowed program of The Bernard Osher Foundation in San Francisco, and is a member-driven organization that is guided by dedicated individuals who are passionate about their vision of OLLI at Bradley University. OLLI volunteers serve the organization through its many committees where program ideas originate. This grassroots approach makes everyone a stakeholder in the process and the results.
