The Institute is offering its 1,000 members twice daily remote, live discussions of current events and lectures on a variety of academic subjects featuring distinguished faculty from UC San Diego and other local universities, community leaders, artists and musicians, and others.  Recent lectures have discussed the future of the European Union, How Baby Brains are Formed, the Life and Works of artist Marc Chagall, among others.  The remote online program format is typically a one-hour lecture followed by an always-lively question and answer period.

Now in its 46th year at UCSD, the Osher Institute is a membership organization for adults over the age of 50 who wish to enrich their lives through continued learning and engagement.  Both monthly and quarterly memberships are currently available.  See the Osher website at http://extension.ucsd.edu/olli/join for current online program offerings and how to become a member.
