Needed: Osher Ambassadors
Osher Institute marketing team update
Spreading the word about the marvelous opportunities available through Osher and recruiting new members is the mission of the Osher Institute’s marketing team.
New Osher Director
Peggy Watson named new director of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Richmond
I met the new Osher Director Peggy Watson in her first week on the job. She said coming to University of Richmond is like coming home again, because she’s a graduate of Westhampton College.
UR's Center for Culinary Arts
Did you know Richmond's Center for Culinary Arts got its start in the late 1990s?
So, do you like to cook? Or how about bake? Maybe you just enjoy watching the Food Channel or the Cooking Channel. If so, you might just be interested in one of the University of Richmond’s gems — the Center for Culinary Arts located in the Gayton Crossing Shopping Center.
Interview with Dr. Edward Ayers
Discussing lifelong learning with the University of Richmond's president
On a beautiful spring morning in early April, I sat down with Dr. Edward Ayers, president of the University of Richmond, in his Maryland Hall office to discuss his thoughts about the Osher program at UR and lifelong learning in general.
Better than 'Where's Waldo'
Identify 'Where's Tim?' and win a prize!
If you’ve seen Tim Hanger’s wonderful photos, either in the Osher Insider or as a member of the Osher hikers, you know he is all over campus — taking classes, exercising, and taking pictures for the Osher office as well as for our e-newsletter.
History of Music series returns
Sheryl Smith's popular history of music series to be reprised in fall 2014
Sheryl Smith’s “History of Music” series was so popular that Osher will offer a reprise in fall, 2014. It’s easy to understand why, since Sheryl’s enthusiasm for music, from Gregorian chant to John Cage, is infectious.
Virginia Baptist Historical Society
Little-known gem, the Virginia Baptist Historical Society has been housed on campus since 1876
Tucked behind the Boatwright Library is the Virginia Baptist Historical Society. The Society is probably better known outside of the University of Richmond community, even though it has been on campus since 1876.
Civic Engagement Interest Group
Civic engagement group focuses on raising grandkids and helping kids make informed career choices
The Civic Engagement Interest Group was started last fall to provide Osher members opportunities to enhance their service activities.
