Subject: Important notice regarding SC Fellow/External Fellow fees for 2021

Since the Faculty Club will remain closed until at least the summer of 2021 and since our other expenses are covered by the 2020 fees, Senior College will not require any fee payment in January 2021 from existing Fellows and External Fellows. With the expectation that SC may resume in-person meetings in the Fall of 2021, the amount of fees owing will be determined in the early summer, 2021. Fellows and External Fellows joining between January and June 2021 will be asked to pay an introductory fee of $25.

If they have not done so already, Fellows and External Fellows who paid the full annual membership fee in January 2020 can request a refund or a credit of $75.

Senior College and the CoVid 19 pandemic:

Michael Hutcheon
Principal, Senior College

Principal’s Message

To Members and Fellows of Senior College Welcome to a Fall term unlike any in our history. This summer has proved to be most instructive in teaching us how Senior College might adapt in its response to the Covid 19 pandemic. After postponing our last two planned Wednesday lectures at the Faculty Club it became clear that many members wished to continue to meet, for both intellectual and social purposes – incredibly important as we all hunkered down, sheltering in place. So, in contrast to our usual quiet summers this year’s was loaded with events: Lindas Hutcheon and Corman with the Programme committee developed a series of Wednesday lectures; David Milne found new books to discuss; and Marty Klein led colloquia and ”Meet your colleagues” sessions through this period.
