The university has named Rosemary Reinhardt as the new director of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. She replaces retiring director Ellie McKinnon, who served as the programs director since it was founded 10 years ago.
Reinhardt most recently served as interim vice president for University Advancement at Boise State from May 2011 to November 2012. She also was a special assistant to the president at Boise State from 2007-2011 and served a 10-month stint as the interim executive director of the Morrison Center for the Performing Arts in 2010.

Before joining Boise State, she worked for the Saint Alphonsus Foundation and Idaho Shakespeare Festival. She has a masters degree in arts management from Wayne State.
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is a membership-based lifelong learning program for the mature adult community. It offers a series of college-level noncredit lectures, short courses and special events for those older than 50 who have a zest for learning. The Institute is offered through Boise State Universitys Division of Extended Studies and in cooperation with local organizations.
