    Academic Connections

    Hamline University provides several academics-oriented opportunities for the community.
      

    Community Education

    Hamline Midway Library has worked with various faculty and staff to offer community education. These events have been organized in the past by library leadership and currently by the community association "Friends of Hamline Midway Library" and Julie Gebbon Green. We have been working with library leadership to see about coordinating a more consistent or ongoing schedule of such events. For more information, please contact Louann Terveer, Hamline Reference and Instruction Librarian, at ltrerveer01@hamline.edu.

    Faculty Expertise

    The Office of Strategic Communications maintain a comprehensive list of faculty experts accessible to the public.  If you have a topic you’re exploring, and are looking for a connection, this site can help direct you.

    Audit a Course

    Hamline offers the opportunity to audit courses, subject to permission by the instructor of the course and classroom capacity. There is a nominal fee attached that varies by program (undergrad courses are $100), but that fee can conceivably be waived. View our Course Schedule or search our Academics Catalog.

    Classroom Meets Community

    Hamline's classes have a long history of partnering with our neighbors. While participation varies by professor and year, we've included a few examples of how our Anthropology classes have collaborated with the community.
