TASIS Senior Humanities Program
The Senior Humanities Program (SHP) draws from five of the best elements of the TASIS identity—truth, beauty, goodness, international understanding, and humanitarian action—to provide TASIS seniors and postgraduates with a signature educational experience. Students enhance their intellectual experience through discussions, trips, lectures, and tours focusing on these five elements. This year-long program conveys a clear message to seniors and postgraduates about what the School hopes for and expects from them after they leave TASIS.
The Senior Humanities Program was made possible by a CHF 100,000 donation from TASIS parents Michael and Jane Grindfors to the The M. Crist Fleming Endowment for International Understanding and Leadership in 2008. It remains an integral part of a TASIS education thanks to ongoing financial assistance from generous parents, support from the TASIS Board of Directors, and the work done by a dedicated group of teachers and students who created and continue this special program.
Following an SHP keynote address, the Program hosts an informal question-and-answer session at Casa Fleming. The opportunity to speak directly with our guests following their presentations is always a favorite memory for our upperclassmen.
