Why become an Osher member?

Studies tell us that people who are involved in lifelong learning are happier and healthier. Being an Osher member allows you to engage with other lifelong learners, exchange ideas, and attend offerings that cover a wide range of topics including music, history, science, and technology. Annual membership fees support the Institute to bring high-quality programming to members throughout the year.
