UNLV’s lifelong learning program received a $100,000 grant from the Bernard Osher Foundation.
UNLV is one of 13 campuses nationwide to be added this year to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute network, which includes 61 universities that offer learning in retirement programs. Other recipients this year include Harvard, Northwestern, Clemson, and Rutgers.
As a result of the grant, the UNLV lifelong learning program, which is offered through the Division of Educational Outreach, will be known as the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UNLV.
UNLV has been offering lifelong learning programs for the past 13 years, with approximately 300 Las Vegas seniors enrolled each fall in more than 20 study groups designed and conducted by the seniors themselves. The weekly two-hour sessions cover a range of topics, including music, literature, history, and writing.
In addition, UNLV’s Academic 62+ program allows seniors to take academic classes for free during the fall and spring semesters. Seniors can also take classes at a 50 percent tuition discount during the summer term. Classes taken for credit can be applied to an undergraduate degree.
