2021 Hum 101 Donation

We got out the big cheque book to support UAlberta Humanities 101 program.

the HUM Program brings together a diverse group of adult learners who all share a passion for lifelong learning.

As with practically everything in the past 15 months, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced Humanities 101 to switch gears and plot a new course to deliver their programming. They have teamed up with CJSR FM 88.5 to broadcast their classes, used Zoom and Facebook, and their own website hum101onair.wordpress.com.

A few of the Friends met on a patio for a quick photo op. We are smiling under our masks and happy that the Friends are able to support Hum101 and their programming (and that it was a lovely day).

Donation to Humanities 101

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.
