Gov. Dave Heineman has proclaimed Jan. 23-28 “Lifelong Learning Week” in observance of the 20th anniversary of lifelong learning at UNL.
“Lifelong Learning Week” is a part of a national movement created by Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes located on university and college campuses throughout the U.S.
The proclamation acknowledges the importance of lifelong learning, which “provides stimulating, congenial, and varied educational opportunities designed specifically for lifelong learners.”
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UNL, serves nearly 1,000 of the state’s seasoned learners in the Lincoln area.
“Thank you to Gov. Heineman for signing this proclamation, which helps recognize all those who never stop learning,” said Dee Aguilar, Coordinator of the OLLI at UNL.
“The observance of the 20th Anniversary provides a special time to express our appreciation and gratitude to all of the volunteers who are the heart of OLLI’s longevity and success,” said Herb Howe, Chair of the OLLI Advisory Council.
OLLI at UNL, a membership-based community of adults age 50 and older, fosters lifelong learning through courses, informal gatherings, field trips and special events designed to challenge, inform and enrich.
Last year, OLLI at UNL attracted more than 2,200 course registrations and 1,200 special event registrations.
