All Osher Lifelong Learning courses will meet at the Stephens Lake Activity Center (SLAC), 2311 East Walnut—the white building with green awnings directly across the street from the Reichmann Pavilion on the north edge of Stephens Lake Park. We are very grateful to the City of Columbia Parks and Recreation Department for hosting our courses in their classrooms at SLAC.
As a registered student in our program, you may request a library card for use in the MU Libraries. Should you wish a library card, please apply through our office.
If the Columbia School System cancels classes, the Osher Institute classes, too, will not meet on that day.
