Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

OLLI@CCU is housed in the Office of Academic and Community Outreach at Coastal Carolina University. We provide opportunities for adult, noncredit students to achieve intellectual stimulation, as well as cultural and social growth. Lifelong Learning courses are designed to meet the needs and interests of mature adults in the local community. Courses are offered during day and evening hours at our convenient locations.

Our centers, open 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. daily, are located in Conway at 290 Allied Drive (843-349-5002) and in Litchfield at 14427 Ocean Highway, Litchfield Landing (843-349-6584). In addition to non-credit courses, OLLI@CCU offers local, national and international excursions, lecture series, clubs and special events. Night and weekend activities are provided on a limited basis. Registrations that are taken after 4:15 p.m. will be processed on the next business day.

In the fall of 2007, Coastal Carolina University’s Division of Academic Outreach was awarded its first grant from the Bernard Osher Foundation. Upon receipt of the grant, our 20-year-old adult education program was renamed the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Coastal Carolina University, nicknamed “OLLI@CCU,” and rededicated to providing quality learning and networking opportunities to the large and ever-growing 50 and above adult population along the Grand Strand.
