Board of Advisors
Chair: Jim Strouse
Volunteering on the OLLI Board of Advisors provides an opportunity to work with people who have similar interests in lifelong learning while utilizing previous work/lifetime experiences. The rewards from volunteering not only enhance personal growth but provide opportunities to establish new friendships. Participation in board activities also establishes a sense of belonging to the university, as you contribute to UNCW's mission to enrich the quality of life through scholarly community engagement.

- Course Ambassador and Event Assistant
Course Ambassadors lend a hand with OLLI classes, such as assisting the instructor, maintaining the class roster, and locking the building. Course Ambassadors must be OLLI members and attend a training session. The course registration fee is then waived for the Course Ambassador for the class they are assisting.
- Community Ambassador
Community Ambassadors share OLLI with their friends, neighborhoods, and civic clubs. They “get the word out” in as many ways possible. Community Ambassadors distribute Pathways twice a year to various locations around New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender Counties.
