Historical Note

The North Carolina Center for Creative Retirement was launched in 1987 to advance the "quality of life for retirees and pre-retirees and the quality of the communities in which they live". The Center was developed by UNC Asheville as a not-for-profit affiliate that had three objectives: provide an educational need, promote the economic development of the region, and facilitate research in issues pertaining to older adults. The Center operated a range of programs, including the College for Seniors. In 2012 the center was renamed, and became the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI).
