OLLI Member Handbook

The OLLI at UK, Lexington Advisory Board and OLLI Administration have worked together to create a handbook that will provide information regarding our program, policies and the many opportunities available to our members. As we continue to grow in scope, content, and membership, the Member Handbook will be updated as needed. The most up-to-date version will always be posted on the OLLI at UK, Lexington webpage.

What is an OLLI Shared Interest Group?

A Shared Interest Group is a group of OLLI Members who have a common interest. Shared interest Groups (SIG) get together at a location of their choosing on their own schedule, determine their own content and events, set their own directions, and exist as long as there is interest. Learning can be formal or informal and flexible, including meeting to share experiences. At this time we have 4 interest groups being started. Sign up for those that interest you, information on the first meeting will follow. (Persons must be a current OLLI member to participate, there are no additional fees for SIGs)

  • Participation on Committees - Curriculum, Development, Forum, Promotion, Reception & Welcome, Social  
  • Class Assistant - take roll, assist with handouts, call students, act as liaison, etc.
  • Facilitator - lead discussions, may/may not have set content.
  • Instructor - teach a course.

Leadership and volunteer roles are flexible. Please contact Diana S. Lockridge
