Learning for the love of it!


The mission of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UM (MOLLI) is to offer programs that promote the lifelong learning and personal growth of 50+ individuals through a diverse collection of noncredit, short courses offered in the fall, winter, and spring. Our goal is to create an accessible and innovative learning environment so that individuals from all backgrounds and levels of education may pursue learning. This is truly learning for the joy of learning – no exams, no grades – just fun! 


MOLLI courses expose learners to Montana's best teachers, including emeritus and current UM faculty, as well as, professionals and scholars from the community. Program offerings include three 6-week terms and one 3-week term a year, short courses, member presentations, and special member events covering topics that range from the Humanities, Fine Arts, Natural and Social Sciences, and Political and Current Affairs. MOLLI classes are predominantly held in the James E. Todd Building (adjacent to the University Center) on the University of Montana campus, but the larger or more hands-on course may be held in other buildings on the UM campus, in the community, or in the field.
