The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute in the Colleges of Arts and Sciences at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa is an educational program that offers courses and special multidisciplinary projects to encourage individuals from all walks of life to engage their minds, enrich their lives, and serve the community. The Osher Institute, formerly known as the Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL), is now a year-round program thanks to three generous grants of $100,000 each and two $1 million endowments from the San Francisco-based Bernard Osher Foundation. The foundation supports a wide variety of educational and community projects and sustains a growing network of 115 university-based lifelong learning programs in 48 states and the District of Columbia.
