Because you belong where curious minds gather

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at RIT is a membership–led organization that stimulates minds and forges friendships among people 50 and older who live in Greater Rochester.

Our days are filled with classes, discussions, talks, social events, and travel—but never exams.

Offerings span a wide range of topics, including the arts, literature, science, history, and government. We were founded in 1987 as the Athenaeum at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

In 2006, we became an Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, joining a growing national network of more than 120 university-based centers for older learners.
