Humanity in Perspective 2021 Summer Youth Course

This summer, Oregon Humanities will extend its free humanities course, Humanity in Perspective (HIP), to interested Oregon high school students. A partnership with the Clemente Course in the Humanities, HIP Summer Youth Courses provide the opportunity to earn free, transferable undergraduate credit from Bard College. There are two one-credit sections, each taking place online via Zoom. 

Section One (June 28 to July 2, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.)
Priority admission given to students involved in the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization’s RISE program and Upward Bound at David Douglas High School.
Application due date: June 18, 2021.

Section Two: (July 12 to 16, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.)
Open to Oregon rising juniors and seniors and 2021 graduates, statewide.
Application due date: July 2, 2021.

The course will explore what it means to be in service and in community. The main goals are to develop critical understanding of community service and abilities to engage in service and community in ways that are relevant to students’ needs and interests.

Rising juniors and seniors and 2021 graduates are eligible to apply. There is no GPA requirement for admission. The main requirements are to have a strong desire to participate, a willingness to make a commitment to the full course, and follow-through with assignments, in-class readings, and attendance.
