Education for Utah’s aging population

A new report from the U’s Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute found that the elder share of the population in Utah will expand rapidly over the next few decades. In fact, the share of Utahns over 65 is on track to double in the next 50 years. The U’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is part of a national network of more than 120 institutes supported by the Bernard Osher Foundation that provide classes for people over 50. The institute offers courses, lectures and activities for its students with no tests or grades. Instructors are distinguished emeritus faculty, scholars and community experts. Osher Director Cathy House is available to discuss the program and its benefits for people 50 and over.
