It’s Back!

Hello Brandeis!

It is with great pleasure that I present to you Communiversity! Communiversity is a program that gives the community an opportunity to share in the diversified talents and interests of all its members. This program saw great success in the 70’s and 80’s and began again in Spring 2005.  It is a program in which Brandeis teaches Brandeis- faculty, staff, and students teach and attend classes that are a bit different from your everyday classes. Last year we had over 300 participants taking more than 20 classes!

Communiversity needs your talents and participation!  If you have a special interest or hobby, you may want to consider teaching a course.  In past years, Communiversity has offered courses in topics such as ethnic cooking, doll making, Scrabble 101, modern music, web design, knitting, juggling, Sign Language, Tango, Kashrut, and sketch comedy.

Communiversity ’09 courses will meet once or twice a week for five weeks between Monday, Feburary 23 and Friday, March 28, 2009. If you are interesting in teaching a class please fill out the application linked to by 11:59 pm on Monday, December 8th.
Thank you for your interest. Feel free to contact me with any questions.


On a side note – notice all the new events on the activist calendar?

  1. Hey, I’d be interested in a course like that. I’ve never really learned CSS, PHP and so on.


  2. Awesome! I’m planning on running a Communiversity course in making websites: HTML, CSS, traditional layouts, accessibility, SEO, and whatever else people are interested in. Might get into some scripting as well: jQuery on the client side, PHP on the server. (I don’t much like PHP, but it’s the default language for website server scripting, so not much I can do.)

    Anyone interested in this class? Any suggestions for what to include?
