The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Florida Atlantic University is dedicated to offering intellectually enriching educational experiences. We offer non-credit courses and programs in a welcoming atmosphere with state-of-the-art facilities. This community of seasoned learners enjoys a diverse and creative curriculum, along with concerts and entertainment. In establishing this program, FAU recognized the still unfulfilled demand for educational and intellectual stimulation for adults who are beyond the traditional university years.

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at FAU, formerly known as the Lifelong Learning Society, was established in 1980 on the Boca Raton campus and in 1997 on the Jupiter campus. In 2017, The Bernard Osher Foundation approved an endowment grant to support Florida Atlantic University's Lifelong Learning Society. The endowment grant supports and stimulates the strategic development of lifelong learning programming at both the University's Boca Raton and Jupiter campuses.

Courses and programs are available from October through May on the Boca Raton campus and October through July on the Jupiter campus. Taught by FAU professors and distinguished guest lecturers, course and program offerings include such varied subjects as foreign policy, music, art, history, science, literature, philosophy, current events and films.
