OLLI CSUF Collaboration

The OLLI Collaboration Program matches well-qualified volunteers with academic opportunities.Benefits to Volunteers and Students

OLLI members are an invaluable resource with expertise and skills honed over decades of life and career experiences.  As volunteers, they are eager to help enrich CSUF academic programs and students' education and career preparation.  The OLLI presence across disciplines underscores the university's deep commitment to teaching and learning throughout one's lifespan. 

For the volunteer, collaboration provides an outlet for continued involvement that research studies have shown to have a positive impact on health, well-being, and even long life.  For the university, collaboration broadens students’ educational experience and helps prepare them for successful careers and life challenges.

Begun in 2010, the OLLI Collaboration Program is guided by a Steering Committee of Associate/Assistant Deans and is led by a Working Committee of OLLI members.  During the last two academic years, OLLI members have responded to almost 1000 volunteer opportunities, requiring a few hours, a one-time effort, or an ongoing commitment.
