"I am always on the lookout for programs that open doors to new ideas, deepen my understanding of a topic or challenge my thinking. OLLI-UW is such a program. I'm constantly impressed by the passion and genuine scholarship of its instructors. We're lucky to have this resource in our own back yard!"
