Due to Coronavirus ...

Due to COVID-19, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Arkansas has suspended all in-person programs and activities through June 30, 2020. Classes are NOT canceled. Several classes are being rescheduled and will transition to an interactive, online format through Blackboard Collaborate Ultra (learn more here). This decision aligns with recommendations from the College of Education and Health Professions, the university, and local, state and federal officials.
