Distinguished Lecture Series and All Thursday Morning Lecture Series Package
The OLLI Distinguished Lecture Series consists of ten lectures. Most are held on Tuesday mornings at 10:00 a.m., once per month from September through June. The speakers are well-informed experts from town and gown who share their specialized knowledge in an engaging manner. Each lecture is just the beginning; a stimulating question-and-answer period follows most sessions, and frequently there is an opportunity to join the speaker at a dutch-treat lunch afterwards. OLLI-UM offers five OLLI Thursday Morning Lecture Series each year as well as a Summer Lecture Series. Each series offers six lectures on a unifying theme and a variety of speakers who cover specific aspects of the theme. Learning continues in an active question-and-answer period following each lecture. Most presentations are at 10 a.m. on Thursdays at the Rave Cinema in Ypsilanti. The Summer Lecture Series consists of three lectures held in late June and July at the Morris Lawrence Building, Washtenaw Community College.
