OLLI National Research Review Panel

There is potential for research within the OLLI network that both strengthens the programs and contributes to the national understanding of lifelong learning for older learners. Relevant research proposals should be submitted to Anne Cardale. These will then be forwarded to the OLLI National Resource Center’s Research Review Panel.

Mission statement of the Research Review Panel

  • The OLLI Research Review Panel serves as a resource to assess the quality and efficacy of prospective research projects that involve more than a single OLLI program as well as to encourage and support such research activity. It does this by reviewing project protocols, providing assistance in research design, being available for general consultation, and communicating findings to the OLLI network
