Member Leadership & Participation

Participation in OLLI at UNT can mean much more than attending classes and enjoying other activities.  It can also mean volunteering to help plan, direct, advise and grow the program. Every member is encouraged to consider joining a Standing Committee, serving as an OLLI at UNT Ambassador, and standing for election to the Advisory Council.

Advisory Council

The nine member OLLI at UNT Advisory Council works hand in hand with the OLLI at UNT Director to review and evaluate policies and operations. The Council also works to provide strategic planning that ensures successful program growth and quality that closely aligns with the needs of OLLI at UNT membership. All those who serve on the Council must be elected by the OLLI at UNT membership. Terms of service are two years (five members elected in even numbered years and four in odd numbered years), with the possibility of serving a second consecutive term.
