Get connected outside of the classroom!
Current members have the opportunity to volunteer, serve on our Advisory Board, and get involved in Special Interest Groups (SIGs).
Volunteering is a great way to support the Osher Institute and engage with other members. Ways to volunteer with the Institute include:
- Serving as a greeter before class
- Distributing Osher catalogs across the Treasure Valley
- Being a Special Interest Group (SIG) leader
- Joining our curriculum, scholarship, travel, or volunteer committee
If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please fill out the online Volunteer Interest Form.
The Osher Institute Advisory Board is drawn from the membership and provides assistance to the Institute director.
The Advisory Board supports the Osher Institute by acting as advisers and advocates of its mission, promoting a vibrant learning community, and furthering the educational and public engagement goals of the Institute and Boise State University.
Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are member-led opportunities for learning and engagement outside of the classroom. Areas of interest include hiking in the foothills, memoir writing, genealogy, and more.
If you are interested in starting your own SIG, please contact Program Coordinator Jamie Lundergreen at (208) 426-2027 or
