Humanities 101 going strong at 5 years

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

For the fifth year, the Humanities 101 (HUM 101) course will be running this spring at Renison. A tuition-free university-level program for economically marginalised individuals, HUM 101 is intended to awaken interest in education, increase self-esteem, and serve as a springboard to further community involvement and/or education.

Thanks to a strong partnership with The Working Centre, study groups take place at one of that agency's locations in downtown Kitchener. On Thursday evenings, students attend classes at Renison. There are eleven guest instructors from a range of disciplines: leisure sciences, applied health sciences, social psychology, public health, economics, environmental studies, engineering, social work, communication studies, and education. There are also six TA volunteers, five students from the BSW program, and two KW community members. 
 
Professor Trish Van Katwyk coordinates the course, which has 20 students this year. Financial support for the program comes from The Doris & Ross Dixon Foundation as well as the University of Waterloo, in addition to the many people who contribute their abilities and expertise as volunteers.
