KristiMillikanDirector's letter

Dear Colleagues,
As the new director of Osher at Mizzou, I am honored to join you for the 2015 fall semester. It is an exciting time to be a part of the program. As Osher has continued to grow, it allows us to offer more courses covering a broad array of topics and formats. In addition, Osher has been able to provide more benefits to members including discounted tickets to select films at Ragtag Cinema and free Parks & Recreation classes offered at the Hillcrest Community Center.

Here are some additional highlights from the new developments the staff and advisory board have created for you:

  • Four new multi-speaker series
    The Law and Order, All of Us Together, Health and Wellness, and Amazing Discoveries courses provide a diverse set of expert perspectives every week on current legal, cultural and scientific issues unfolding in the world today.
  • More membership options
    In addition to our Premium membership, which provides the most benefits and unlimited courses for the entire school year, we are offering a basic membership and a semester membership.
  • Monthly option
    If you register this fall for the Premium membership, we now offer a monthly payment option. This allows you to establish an auto-pay of $21 per month for all the benefits of a Premium Osher membership.

If you are interested in learning more about any of these new options, further information is available in this catalog.

I am very much looking forward to meeting everyone in Osher’s vibrant community and thank you for the opportunity to contribute to your wonderful program!
