Study Leaders - Guidelines and Information on Course Proposals and Teaching
If you are interested in teaching a class for the Summer 2014 term, please complete and return the Study Leader Course Proposal Form [(DOC) or (PDF)], which also includes instructions. Completed forms are due to the Osher office by December 9, 2013. We will send an email acknowledgement when we receive your course proposal form.

The popularity and growth of Osher at Carnegie Mellon are because of the commitment, enthusiasm and talents of our Study Leaders. Study Leaders volunteer all of their time in preparing and educating an engaged group of lifelong learners.
Who are our Study Leaders?
Professors from Carnegie Mellon, the University of Pittsburgh and other local colleges and high schools, religious figures, political consultants, lawyers, artists, architects, directors of non-profit groups, police detectives, physicians, historians, engineers, assistant district attorneys, poets, editors, chefs, naturopaths, and the Dean Emerita of the Carnegie Mellon University Libraries have all provided a splendid array of diversified and stimulating courses. Members of the Curriculum Committee meet three times per year to discuss potential study leaders. Members are encouraged to provide suggestions for possible courses.
