One of the Friend’s goals is to connect the community to the University. In support of this goal, we are proud to donate $5000 to the Faculty of Arts Community Service-Learning to contribute to the next two years of their program Humanities 101 (please read more about the program here).
Due to the pandemic, the Big Cheque was presented on May 27, 2020 via Zoom to Dr. David Peacock, Diane McKen and Lisa Prins. Most of the Friend’s board members were able to attend too.
This financial support comes at a critical time since many school programs have moved delivery of courses online and yet many HUM 101 students do not have internet and/or computers or tablets.
