Spread the word

We are actively seeking new members – and you can help.

In recognition of our excellent programs, strong affiliation with RIT, and potential for membership growth, The Bernard Osher Foundation has awarded us grants to help us grow our membership.

    The grants enabled us to:
  • redesign our catalog– getting information about our programs and registering is easier than ever. Please pick up an extra catalog for a friend – or give our staff the mailing information and we’ll send a catalog with a guest pass and invitation to join us for a day of classes and socializing with members.
  • redesign our website – one click gets you to course schedule, registration form , Pfaudler lectures– it couldn’t be faster or easier to learn what’s going on at Osher. Tell your friends about this new website so they can browse and learn more about us.
  • enhance our program offerings - show your friends the current course offerings– they are sure to be hooked! We offer a broad selection of topics with something of interest to everyone. And we’re always looking for more topics and more course leaders.

You enjoy the classes and social events. Most likely your friends would too! Why not invite a friend or two to attend an Open House or class as your guest. Make a day of it!

Word of mouth has always been an effective way to attract new members. Please help us spread the word.

"You know when you get to your 70s and 80s you can begin to think that you’re not going to make much difference any more, among the people. But here, people are teaching classes that they never taught before. And they’re planning these trips…and they get on these committees and they try out new things."


In 2006, we became an Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, joining a growing national network of more than 120 university-based centers for older learners.
