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

Due to COVID-19, the Osher Institute will not be utilizing volunteers during the Spring 2021 semester. If you are interested in volunteering in future semesters, please fill out the online Volunteer Interest Form.

Advisory Board

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.

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) will not take place during the Spring 2021 semester. We look forward to SIG meetings resuming in Fall 2021 if the global health climate allows it.

If you are interested in starting your own SIG, please contact the Osher Institute at
