About OLLI at UNLV Volunteerism

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UNLV is supported and maintained by dedicated Volunteers. 

Our members create and instruct classes, work on committees,  maintain the OLLI at UNLV common areas, and more!  All members are encouraged to participate and share their time and passions with their OLLI peers.

The Volunteerism & Community Outreach Committee is available to assist with pairing members and volunteer opportunities.
