Roll of Honor

Each year OLLI inducts new members into its Instructor Roll of Honor: those Instructors who have successfully taught ten or more classes.  You can find the names of the new inductees in the latest Class Catalog, and you can find plaques with the names of all of them in the OLLI-USF Conference room.  We want to give them a little more recognition here on OLLI’s Instructor Resource web site.  This will be an ongoing project.  Check back whenever you can to see who we’ve been able to add.
