Get Connected

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).

What's going on at the Institute?

Read our monthly e-newsletter, Osher News, and like us on Facebook to be among the first to hear about newly added programs, Boise State campus events, volunteer opportunities, and more!


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) facilitator.
  • Joining our curriculum, scholarship, or volunteer committees.
