Special Interest Groups
OLLI Special Interest Groups (SIGs) will begin meeting again in the Spring semester. Meeting regularly, SIGS provide new and enriching opportunities beyond the OLLI classroom. Another way to continue lifelong learning, each one is formed by a nucleus of people with a special interest in the same subject and who are willing to participate as active, rather than passive, learners. The groups are independent and self-directed, with members deciding where and when they will meet and planning how the group will function. Initially, a member or members need to volunteer to be a leader or co-leader, and leader roles may rotate if the group decides. Meeting places will be provided by OLLI, although a group may decide to meet outside UMass Boston. We currently have five types of active SIGs.

Any members interested in joining one of these groups should contact the OLLI office by email at email@example.com or phone (617-287-7312). The information on future meetings will be sent to those who are on these “Interested” lists. If enough people sign up for an interest, members of the Curriculum Committee will help new groups to get established.
