Lifelong learning is more than taking a class or reading a book. Lifelong learning is a guide and a strategy to age well with benefits for the mind, memory, physical health, social well being and builds community. Many studies show the importance and relevance of a quest for learning and curiosity at any age.
In this episode of Aging Insights, Executive Director Cathy Rowe visits the OSHER Institute of Lifelong Learning at Rutgers University, also known as OLLI-RU. One of over 100 Osher Institute sites around the country, OLLI-RU is at the center of lifelong learning in New Jersey. With a new state of the art facility and a significant expansion and virtual learning under COVID disruptions, OLLI-RU offers hundreds of classes for older adults in New Jersey and beyond.
Join us to visit the site as it re-opens, and meet Executive rector Megan Novak, and Program Coordinators Kristen Michaels and Rajini Kurian to learn about classes, opportunities and the community of these learners.
