In the latest Osher Lifelong Learning Institute podcast, CSUSB President Tomás D. Morales discusses the benefits the OLLI program brings to lifelong learners at the university.
The gift from the Desert Community Foundation will allow the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute to continue providing classes, travel and special interest events to the community’s senior population.
The event is part of a special studies internship project for CSUSB undergraduate students Ruby Ramos of Fontana, Ana Gonzales-Munoz of Cathedral City and Carolina De La Herran of Indio.
“I am very excited to move forward the excellent OLLI program that was led by Sue Anderson,” said Angela Allen. “I hope to bring some fresh ideas that will provide exciting new learning experiences for our mature community.”
