WMU becomes part of Osher Lifelong Learning Institute network

KALAMAZOO: The Bernard Osher Foundation has selected Western Michigan University to become the newest member of the national network of lifelong learning programs it supports.


WMU’s Academy of Lifelong Learning, which has been offering classes for older adults in southwest Michigan since 2011, is now the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Western Michigan University. The agreement, effective April 1th, comes with an operating grant of $100,000 from the foundation to WMU. Once the institute demonstrates success and potential for sustainability, the Osher Foundation will consider awarding an endowment of $1 million to provide permanent support for WMU’s lifelong learning initiative, which is administered by Extended University Programs. 

“We’re enormously pleased about this relationship with Osher, which is the nation’s premier name in lifelong learning,” says Dr. John M. Dunn, president of WMU. “The addition of resources and the opportunity to be part of the Osher network will result in even broader success for our program that is already enthusiastically received by the citizens of the communities we serve.”

WMU's program will join Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes at 117 other colleges and universities in locations that range from Maine to Hawaii and Alaska. The San Francisco-based Osher Foundation began its financial support for such programs in 2001.
