The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Towson University offers adults age 50 and older opportunities for continued learning, along with programs and activities for social and cultural enrichment in a congenial and supportive environment. The institute is a membership organization. Anyone over age 50 is welcome to join as a regular member. Supporting memberships are offered to Towson University faculty and staff of any age. Academic courses and social and cultural activities are planned and implemented by staff and member volunteers through a committee structure that includes curriculum, social/hospitality, outreach/membership, mailings and facilities. A council coordinates committee activities.
