The Curriculum Committee develops the list of outstanding classes OLLI offers each term.  The committee is divided into subcommittees, each focusing on specific interest areas:  Arts, Culture, and Music; Business and Finance; Computers and Technology; Current Events and Other; Health, Fitness, and Exercise; Languages and Travel; Photography; Practical Arts and Hobbies; Psychology, Personal Development, and Self-Help; Religion and Philosophy; and Science and Math.

Each subcommittee has at least two members, and we are always looking for additional OLLI members to help find new and interesting classes and instructors.  If you are interested in participating on a subcommittee or have ideas for new classes, please contact Jim Smeaton, Chair, or Greg Peters, Co-Chair.​
