College for Seniors Instructors
Number of Volunteers needed: many
College for Seniors is always looking for new instructors and new course topics, and all the CFS instructors are volunteers. If you have an idea or interest that other OLLI members would enjoy learning about, offer to give a course in the fall, winter, spring or summer terms. You’ll need to submit a course proposal about five months prior to the term in which you intend to teach. See more information and course proposal forms Here.
Typically a course runs four, six or eight weeks, one class per week, two hours per class. The CFS fall term and spring term is eight weeks, while the winter term and summer term is six weeks.

The Communication Committee and the people who serve on it are a dynamic and creative bunch. We provide publicity, promotion and information distribution for all the members of OLLI chiefly through the Sunday OLLI Observer electronic newsletter. We also provide content and press releases through the UNC Asheville Marketing and Communications department. One of our most ambitious projects is providing bi-weekly stories about the many interesting members, teachers and programs at OLLI.
Interested? Did we have you at writing? Let’s talk. Our committee meets the third Monday each month at 4:15pm for 90 minutes or less in room 207 of the Reuter Center.
The monthly meeting and with assignments, about 3 or 4 hours to interview and write.
