Registration now open for Manhattan's 2016 Osher Lifelong Learning Program

By Charlene Brownson

Kansas State University and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Kansas have teamed up to bring the Manhattan area the diverse content, innovative learning opportunities and quality faculty that promote lifelong learning in the community. The program in Manhattan is coordinated by UFM Community Learning Center.

The Osher Institute offers courses for participants ages 50 and older that focus on the joy of learning. Instructors are carefully selected for their expertise, a passion for the topic and a love of teaching. Courses generally meet weekly for two hours over a three-week period and require no homework, out-of-class preparation or testing.

To enroll, call KU Osher toll-free at 877-404-5823 or 785-864-5823 or register online
