The University of Kentucky has been at the forefront nationally in lifelong learning since 1964.  Over the years the program has grown to over 1200 students taking courses annually.  Our second site opened in Morehead in 2007.  OLLI at UK, Somerset was added in 2008.   Each site is lead by a Volunteer Advisory Board/Leadership Council which determines the direction of their local program, and, with member volunteers, creates courses, events and other creative learning opportunities.

It is easy to join this dynamic community of lifelong learners who are continually exploring new ideas and exciting opportunities in learning.  For more information, contact the OLLI Office at :
