The Humanics Program nurtures students to lead organizations addressing the social
problems facing our communities.
Each class in the program teaches students the capacities they need to achieve these
ends, including how to develop, write, and evaluate grants to fund your organization,
how to create your own grants to fund other organizations, how to recruit and manage
volunteers and staff, and how to enhance the organizational capacity and sustainability
of your organization.
Humanics courses are unlike traditional lecture classes in their emphasis on collaborative
team-building projects, prioritization of service-learning, partnership with community
benefit organizations (CBOs), and hands-on experience with philanthropic grantmaking.
These components are designed to emulate real-world practice and application and cultivate
the abilities to tackle the problems facing society today.
HUMANICS will help you ...
