/ Hope Academy of Senior Professionals (HASP)

Virtual HASP

This summer, we are offering remote delivery of courses with no course registration or fees for members.

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.

Beginning in mid-March, HASP suspended spring programming. We are continuing to work with leadership at Hope College, partnered with local health officials, to determine timelines for resuming in-person operations.

In the meantime, the life of HASP and our commitment to provide lifelong learning opportunities for our members continues in new ways. We are offering remote delivery of summer courses with no course registration or fees for members. 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.

  • We are currently planning to pre-record our HASP Annual Business meeting and will send that link out to members to view online June 16, 2020.
  • We will still publish the annual HASP Review and let you know how and when those are available for pick-up.
  • We will continually provide updates and learning opportunities through our online e-newsletter.
  • Membership renewal, as important as ever, will take place late June 2020.

As always, if you have ideas, questions or concerns, please contact Kim Mendels at mendels@hope.edu. We miss seeing you on campus!
