/ Hope Academy of Senior Professionals (HASP)

Virtual HASP

HASP offers remote delivery of courses via Zoom in our HASP virtual classroom in addition to limited-enrollment, in-person courses. You must be a HASP member to participate in our courses and be registered. The registration link is sent to members or can be obtained by contacting the HASP office at hasp@hope.edu.

From our beginning in 1988, the Hope Academy of Senior Professionals has worked to “foster good listening, learning, reading, sharing and the pleasure of discussion” for a growing and loyal membership. Not even a global pandemic can stop this from continuing.

The life of HASP and our commitment to provide lifelong learning opportunities for our members continues in new ways. This website includes instructions on how to access courses and a collection of resources and lifelong learning content that will allow you to continue to be an involved member from the safety of your home.

You can help make the online experience a bit less impersonal and help us get to know you by uploading your name and picture to Zoom!
