The Fall Festival at the Conway Education Center has been cancelled.

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 three convenient locations.

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.
