Study Leaders

Become a Study Leader

Osher at Dartmouth courses are led by dedicated volunteers who have passion for and knowledge of a subject and want to share that passion with others. Without our dedicated instructors, Osher at Dartmouth would not exist. Please consider offering a course during any of our four terms, either on your favorite subject, or one of the subjects listed below.

If you have any questions, please contact Lisa King or call (603) 646-0154.
